Prospective memory and metacognition

The ability to remember executing previously planned intentions, that is, prospective memory (PM) has shown to improve noticeably during childhood. Recent studies have suggested that metacognition might play a significant role in the development of PM. However, still little is known about metacognitive processes in PM development, especially from the preschool- to the school-age period when important cognitive changes seem to occur. This research project aims to investigate age-related changes in metacognitive monitoring and control in PM.
