Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v80 n3 p201-24 Nov 2001
Examined whether correct eye gaze in a false belief task among 3- to 5-year-olds indexed unconscious knowledge or low confidence conscious knowledge. Found that children "bet" very highly on the location consistent with their explicit answer. Result was supported by a number of conditions that showed that betting was a sensitive measure of even small degrees of uncertainty. (Author/KB)
