Developmental changes in theory of mind occur because people's simulation skills improve as they gain experience with role taking. The primary criticism leveled against simulation theory is that it is based on a Cartesian view that would have childrt-n achieving introspective insight into their own mental states (Perner & Howes, 1992). The third major model used to explain theory of mind research is theory theory. According to patrons of theory theory, people use folk psychology to construct a theorylike body of knowledge about mental processes that helps them interpret other people's behavior (Wellman & Gelman, 1998).
Affiliation, prediction, and status would not be possible without the stability supplied by semantic memory, although the ability to respond and adapt to unanticipated situations and events is equally consequential for survival. Novel information with a possible bearing on future survival is initially recorded in episodic memory but eventually works its way into semantic memory. The complex interplay of these two memory systems illustrates how an organism's genetically programmed evolutionary capacity is shaped by ongoing interactions with the environment.
Results from a recent study suggest that joint attention may precede and facilitate the development of problem-solving and planning skills (de la Ossa & Gauvain, 2001). Joint attention may also have an effect on a child's ability to conceptualize people as intentional agents with their own thoughts, feelings, and ideas. A longitudinal analysis of two autistic and two normal children 2 to 6 years of age disclosed a strong relationship between earlier joint attention problems and later deficits in theory of mind task performance (Gattegno, Ionescu, Malvy, & Adrien, 1999).
