The authors present a quantitative framework for interpreting the results of multidimensional stimulus generalization experiments in animals using concepts derived from the geometrical approach to human cognition. The authors apply the model to the analysis of stimulus generalization data obtained from pigeons trained with different sets of stimuli varying along two orthogonal dimensions. Separable pigeons were trained with stimuli varying along the dimensions of circle size and line tilt… CONTINUE READING
