Preschoolers' Understanding of Mental and Bodily Reactions to Contamination: What You Don't Know Can Hurt You, But Cannot Sadden You.
Kalish, Charles
Developmental Psychology, v33 n1 p79-91 Jan 1997
Three studies explored children's distinctions between mental and bodily reactions to contamination. Found that children distinguished reactions mediated by representations from those mediated by physical interactions. Data suggested that preschoolers distinguished between physical and mental reactions to contamination but had a poor understanding of the actual bodily processes involved. (MOK)
