New paper: "Retrospective attribution of false beliefs in 3-year-old children"

October 17, 2018

The study found that 3-year-old children can retrospectively infer the content of someone’s beliefs by combining present information with relevant events retrieved from episodic memory. This finding shows that emerging capacities for episodic memory contribute to the development of social cognitive processes, enriching children’s ability to monitor others’ mental states.
