identify—more specifically, those related to social inference and social cognitive abilities. It is also possible however, that an assessment of more global neurocognitive functioning is more predictive of social cognitive abilities than specific functioning in any particular domain. That the social cognitive measure of locus of control was not found to be significant related to this social inference measure brings up the question of whether locus of control is related to the social inference abilities measured by the Hinting Task. Separate domains of social cognition may also exist, however these domains should be correlated in order to be labeled under the more general rubric of social cognition. While overall neurocognitive functioning appears to account for a significant amount of variance in this social inference measure, 85% of the variance was not accounted for through these various neurocognitive, social cognitive and socio-behavioral measures. Future studies should increase the number of measures used to assess each of these domains of functioning in order to maximize our understanding of their relationships with social cognitive abilities.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
