The “Special Psychology” section publishes a research on the mental model deficit in preschoolers with mental retardation that employed, firstly, the paradigm of understanding false beliefs and, secondly, experimental situations which actualized the idea of possible success of using and recognizing deception.
The issue also presents an exploration of the role of inner speech in assessments of category judgments and in the transfer from the category example to the whole category; a study on the general model of subjective time that takes into account demographic variables, cultural values and levels of subjective well-being; a research on the application of problematic contradictory situations in the development of moral consciousness in older preschool children, and much more.
Another interesting publication is that of the analysis of a neuropsychological examination of 6-9-year-old children which identified integral indices for assessing several components of the higher mental functions and proved that traditional and computerized neuropsychological examinations are compatible.

Nechaev explores his life as a scientist within pedagogical and organizational psychology as well as in various other areas of psychological research and practice.
