Bilingual experience and executive functioning in young children.
Advanced inhibitory control skills have been found in bilingual speakers as compared to monolingual controls (Bialystok, 1999). We examined whether this effect is generalized to an unstudied languageExpand

How specific is the relation between executive function and theory of mind? Contributions of inhibitory control and working memory
The relation between executive function (EF) and theory of mind (ToM) may involve specific processes of inhibition and/or working memory capacity contributing to ToM, or it might be a reflection ofExpand
