Individual Differences in Inhibitory Control and Children's Theory of Mind.
Carlson, Stephanie M.; Moses, Louis J.
Child Development, v72 n4 p1032-53 Jul-Aug 2001
Examined relation between individual differences in inhibitory control (IC) and theory-of-mind (ToM) performance in preschoolers. Found that IC was strongly related to ToM, even after controlling for several important factors. Inhibitory tasks requiring a novel response in face of a conflicting prepotent response and those requiring delay of a prepotent response were significantly related to ToM. (Author/KB)
