If so, the stimuli will be related not only by conditionality, but by equivalence: Al and Bl will become equivalent members of one stimulus class, A2 and B2 of another. One paradigm for testing whether a conditional-discrimination procedure has generated equivalence relations uses three sets of… CONTINUE READING
