Indeed, its history predates the use of the very term EF by nearly years given that the term EF itself arose out of earlier efforts to understand the neuropsychological functions mediated by the frontal, and especially the prefrontal or premotor, regions of the brain. Thus, there is an inherent conflating of the term EF with the functions of the prefrontal cortex PFC and vice versa that exists because of this history. Born out of the initial efforts to understand those PFC functions, the concept of EF was at first defined by default as what the prefrontal lobes do. Particular attention was paid to the PFC rather than the more obvious, pedestrian, non-executive functions of the primary, secondary, and tertiary motor programming zones of the larger frontal lobes to be found adjacent and more anterior to the sensory-motor strip.

For example, a person is engaging in metacognition if he notices that he is having more trouble learning A than B, or if it strikes her that she should double-check C before accepting it as fact.
J. H. Flavell (, p. ). Metacognition is one of the buzz words in educational psychology, but it is not always clear what is meant by metacognition. Metacognition refers to higher order thinking that involves active control over the cognitive processes engaged in learning.
Because metacognition plays a critical role in successful learning, it is important to study metacognitive activity and development to determine. I remember being that shocked parent in a private school and then having the Lower School Principal make threatening comments if I passed on what I had just figured out.
And all I had done was ask a pertinent follow-up question assuming she was acting in good faith.
