In the last two decades empirical efforts to understand cognitive monitoring and control processes have multiplied in the areas of metacognition and cognitive neuropsychology. However, researchers in these areas frequently used different conceptualizations of monitoring and of control, and even different labels for what might be the same cognitive activities. The combi nation of common interest with diverging approaches gave impetus to a conference during june 1 994 at the University of Firenze, Italy, where scholars from both areas were brought together to discuss their research on cognitive monitoring and control processes. The goals were to facilitate synergistic activity and to determine some common starting points for future research.
