New evidence that infants track others’ mental states

A brain-imaging study offers new support for the idea that infants can accurately track other people’s beliefs. When 7-month-old infants in the study viewed videos of an actor who saw — or failed to see — an object being moved to a new location, activity in a brain region known to play a role in processing others’ beliefs changed in the infants just as it did in adults watching the same videos.
