The Relation between Acquisition of a Theory of Mind and the Capacity to Hold in Mind.
Gordon, Anne C. L.; Olson, David R.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v68 n1 p70-83 Jan 1998
Tested hypothesized relationship between development of a theory of mind and increasing computational resources in 3- to 5-year olds. Found that the correlations between performance on theory of mind tasks and dual processing tasks were as high as r=.64, suggesting that changes in working memory capacity allow the expression of, and arguably the formation of, a theory of mind.
