Assessing theory of mind with nonverbal procedures: Problems with training methods and an alternative “key” procedure
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (1):119-120 (1998)
|Abstract||This commentary criticizes nonverbal methods of assessing theory-of-mind on the basis of prior training of the critical response because they would encourage simple, nonmentalistic, associative solutions even in subjects with mentalistic capacities. I propose instead a new experimental paradigm based upon the use of spontaneous responses in less artificial situations. This method has already provided positive evidence of some level of ToM understanding in nonhuman primates.|
