    Nat Rev Neurosci 1:91-100. 2000

    R Saxe
    Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, MIT, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139, USA
    Annu Rev Psychol 55:87-124. 2004
    ..The clear neural distinction between these processes is evidence that belief attribution is not dependent on either inhibitory control or syntax, but is subserved by a specialized neural system for theory of mind...
