Accuracy of delayed matching to sample was studied in pigeons at different combinations of length of intertrial interval and length of delay. When intertrial interval and delay were varied between sessions in Experiments 1 and 2, accuracy increased monotonically with intertrial interval and decreased monotonically with delay. Evidence was found for constancy of performance at equivalent ratios of intertrial interval to delay, and percentage of correct choices was linearly related to the log of… CONTINUE READING
