Pigeons were trained on a two-stimulus-shape (a plus and a circle) complex conditional discrimination that required birds to match sample and comparison stimuli on some trials and to mismatch on other trials, depending on the level of chamber illumination (bright or dark). Following acquisition, the birds were transferred to a novel color (red and green) task. For half of the birds, the contingencies between levels of illumination and the match/mismatch response requirements were consistent… CONTINUE READING
