Several studies have shown that similarity judgements involve a process of structural alignment akin to analogical mapping. Some research has shown that performing a similarity judgement task produces more relational responding in a subsequent cross-mapping task, suggesting that similarity necessarily uses structural alignment. However, other research has shown that this effect disappears when procedural/material manipulations fail to emphasise the relational aspects of similar scenes. The… CONTINUE READING
