Abstract: 

Examines the effects of prior equivalence testing and verbal instructions on derived self-discrimination transfer. Complex schedules of reinforcement; Matching-to-sample equivalence testing; Self-discrimination training.

Comments: 
A follow-up study to Dymond & Barnes (1994). Subjects were not given equivalence training this time but were instead trained in a series of conditional discriminations. Also, some subjects were given extensive instructions and others were given minimal instructions. Neither of these factors affected the subjects performance and the results from previous experiments were replicated.
