The mentalizing (theory of mind) system of the brain is probably in operation from 18 months of age, allowing implicit attribution of intentions and other mental states, and from this age children are able to explain the misleading reasons that have given rise to a false belief.
Neural correlates of attentional expertise in long-term meditation practitioners
In age-matched participants, using functional MRI, it was found that activation in a network of brain regions typically involved in sustained attention showed an inverted u-shaped curve in which expert meditators (EMs) with an average of 19,000 h of practice had more activation than novices, but EMs with anAverage of 44,000H had less activation.

The functional architecture of human empathy.
A model of empathy that involves parallel and distributed processing in a number of dissociable computational mechanisms is proposed and may be used to make specific predictions about the various empathy deficits that can be encountered in different forms of social and neurological disorders.
Toward a theory of episodic memory: the frontal lobes and autonoetic consciousness.
Evidence supports a preliminary theory of episodic remembering, which holds that the prefrontal cortex plays a critical, supervisory role in empowering healthy adults with autonoetic consciousness-the capacity to mentally represent and become aware of subjective experiences in the past, present, and future.
