A Componential View of Theory of Mind: Evidence from Williams Syndrome.
Tager-Flusberg, Helen; Sullivan, Kate
Cognition, v76 n1 p59-89 Jul 14 2000
Argues that there is a social-cognitive and a social-perceptual component to a theory of mind. Presents as evidence three studies comparing children with Williams syndrome to children with Prader-Willi syndrome, and to children with nonspecific mental retardation. The findings suggest that only social-perceptual components of theory of mind, which are linked to distinct neurobiological substrates, are spared. (Author/KB)
