Project description: Many researchers claim theory of mind is present in infancy. So how come 3-year-olds have difficulty saying where someone is looking from eye direction alone (Doherty & Anderson, 1999)? The aim of this PhD is to explore how explicit gaze judgement and explicit theory of mind abilities relate. The hypothesis is that theory of mind developments around 4 years are new and qualitatively different from what infants are able to do. This specifies the general topic: applicants should provide a more specific proposal after discussion with me.
