Understanding Photos, Models and Beliefs: A Test of the Modularity Thesis of Theory of Mind.
Charman, Tony; Baron-Cohen, Simon
Cognitive Development, v10 n2 p287-98 Apr-Jun 1995
Explores the dissociation between the performance by children with autism on false belief tasks, on which they do poorly, and false photograph, false map, and false drawing tasks, on which they do well. Suggesting domain specificity in the development of representational system, the results supported the modularity of theory of mind and the specificity of the metarepresentational deficit on autism.
