Example text

Thus, I have constructed a neural developmental model of ToM incorporating aspects of both of these hypotheses of ToM development. Although this model has limitations due to the limitations of our study (and of a few other developmental brain imaging studies on ToM and/or related social cognition) and scarcity of pediatric data in the ToM neuroimaging literature overall, it attempts to incorporate the findings that have been presented here. I hypothesize that during childhood (before the age of 12), ToM understanding is more closely linked to understanding of emotions, and that young children employ the vmPFC or the ventral part of PFC to process the highly emotion-laden ToM (Figure 2).
