Children's Understanding of Psychogenic Bodily Reactions.
Notaro, Paul C.; Gelman, Susan A.; Zimmerman, Marc A.
Child Development, v72 n2 p444-59 Mar-Apr 2001

Results supported a developmental path: younger children view psychogenic bodily responses as wholly physical, but with age, view them as both physical and psychological. (Author/KB)
