A Nonverbal False Belief Task: The Performance of Children and Great Apes.
Call, Josep; Tomasello, Michael
Child Development, v70 n2 p381-95 Mar-Apr 1999
Compared performance of preschool children, chimpanzees, and orangutans on nonverbal task of false-belief understanding and tested children's performance on a verbal version of the same task. Found that children's performance on verbal and nonverbal tasks were highly correlated, and no chimp or orangutan succeeded in the nonverbal false-belief task even though they evidenced mastery of general task demands.
