Welcome to the Developing Mind Lab

Our lab examines how children develop an appreciation of mental states like belief, desire, and intention, i.e., theory of mind. Particularly, we are interested in the role executive functioning, e.g., inhibitory control and working memory, plays in the emergence and expression of children’s theory of mind.
