The present investigation examined whether the amount of compatible single-element training affected response accuracy for conditional-discrimination tasks requiring attention to multiple cues. Four severely mentally retarded adults participated, and a multiple baseline across subjects and reversal design was employed. Following acquisition of conditional discriminations by individually training each stimulus element, transfer tests were provided. In the first transfer condition, two intermixed… CONTINUE READING
