ZEGARRA-VALDIVIA, Jonathan  and  CHINO VILCA, Brenda. Mentalization and the Theory of Mind. Rev Neuropsiquiatr [online]. 2017, vol.80, n.3, pp.189-199. ISSN 0034-8597.

The aim of this bibliographic revision is to delineate y conceptualize the Theory of Mind (ToM) as a metacognitive and socio-emotional process that allows people to recognize feelings, believes, and intentions in other people and inside themselves. We analyze different explicative theories, in particular the modular point of view, and review its complexity, kinds of evaluation and its relevance in Latin-American studies on conscience phenomena and psychopathology.

Keywords : Social cognition; metacognitive process; mentalizing; psychopathology; theory of mind; social neuroscience.
