I am rather new to this, but as far as I can understand, when a camera is used with a flash in TTL mode, a separate exposure meter measures light reflected off the film and cuts off the flash when the film gets enough exposure.

I wonder what is actually measured: light from the entire frame or some particular spot? And what if the camera uses center-weighted exposure metering, is the TTL exposure meter also center-weighted? And if the camera has several exposure metering modes?

And finally, does the answer depend on the camera?

I am not talking about fancy TTL modes; just standard TTL.
