In this chapter, the concept of monitored and unmonitored memory and cognition is introduced, and behavioral as well as neurobiological findings are used to link the application of these concepts in humans and other animals. Techniques are described that assess cognitive monitoring in nonverbal species, which indicate some of the putative differences in function associated with monitored and unmonitored cognition. Difficulties in characterizing the mechanisms which support the monitoring of cognition are highlighted, and thoughts on how this work might best proceed are provided.
