Meta-Analysis of Theory-of-Mind Development: The Truth about False Belief.
Wellman, Henry M.; Cross, David; Watson, Julanne
Child Development, v72 n3 p655-84 May-Jun 2001
Conducted meta-analysis to examine empirical inconsistencies and theoretical controversies concerning false-belief tasks and understanding about mental states. Found that a combined model including age, country of origin, and four task factors accounted for 55 percent of the variance in false-belief performance. Findings are consistent with theoretical accounts proposing that understanding of belief exhibit conceptual change in the preschool years. (Author/KB)
