conditional transfer of discriminative functions in equivalence relations, 3-6 yr olds, Ireland
Abstract: 

The authors, researchers at the National University of Ireland and University of Cork, conducted research on equivalence relations in which all subjects showed the predicted transfer of discriminative function through the equivalence of a stimuli.

Comments: 
Transfer and contextually-controlled transfer in kids of different ages with the older subjects passing the more complex tests. A nice example of a nonautomated transfer study.
