Examined gaze aversion in 5- and 8-year-olds when answering verbal reasoning and arithmetic questions of varying difficulty. Found that older children increase gaze aversion from the face of the adult questioner in response to both verbal and arithmetic difficult questions. Young children responded less consistently to cognitive difficulty. (Author/KB)
