Miller, Patricia H.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v39 n2 p343-62 Apr 1985
Examined the ability of three-year-olds, four-year-olds, kindergartners, and second graders to predict how certain internal and external conditions affect behavior. In two studies, a forced-choice procedure revealed that even the youngest group could predict the effect of various causes, while a third study examined more complex types of causal reasoning.
