The authors, researchers at Leiden University and National University of Ireland, conducted the present study by designing an equivalence-equivalence test in which the designated correct performances cannot be attributed to a process other than matching functionally-same relations. The results demonstrated that all subjects matched functionally-same equivalence relations, thus evidenced equivalence-equivalence or analogical reasoning.
