  title={Generalization in Human Category Learning},
  author={Andy J. Wills},
Two experiments are reported that investigate the difference in g radient of generalization observed between one-category (non-d iscrim inative) and two-category (discrim inative) training. Extrapolating from the resu lts of a number of animal lear ning studies, it was predicted that the g radient should be steeper under discrim inative training. The ® rst experiment con ® rms this basic prediction for the stimuli used, which were novel, prototype-structured, and constructed from 12 symbols… CONTINUE READING
