Description
Human thoughts have no mass and remain definitely hidden from others’ view. Still, we are remarkable at predicting others’ mental states from observable phenomena. Sensitivity to eye cues enables us, for example, to detect the presence of other minds, assess theirs content and interact with them through eye contact, gaze following and joint attention. Emerging in early infancy, these competences are precursor to later mentalizing abilities and are known to depend upon a set of cerebral structures overlapping with the theory of mind network, under the regulatory influence of neuropeptides such as oxytocin. While the existence of theory of mind in monkeys and apes...
