Presents a model for the establishment of natural kind and fuzzy subordinate categories in the response transfer between stimuli in generalized equivalence classes of people. Formation of equivalence classes; Naturally occurring categories and generalized equivalence classes.

- Abstracts from the annual meeting of the Pavlovian Society. // Integrative Physiological & Behavioral Science;Jan-Mar94, Vol. 29 Issue 1, p88
Presents an abstract of the research report `Autonomic Conditioning With Prepared Stimuli and Information Processing,' by Wolfram Boucsein and Peter Kirsh, submitted to the annual meeting of the Pavlovian Society, held on September 30-October 2, 1993, in Morristown, New Jersey.
- The effect of manipulating CS hedonic value on the magnitude of a conditioned taste aversion. Roll, John M. // Current Psychology;Fall94, Vol. 13 Issue 3, p226
Assesses the relationship between the value of a conditioned stimulus (CS) and strength of a conditioned taste aversion (CTA). Definition of the term hedonic value; Means of shifting the hedonic value of a stimulus.
- Perceptual defense and vigilance to perinatal stimuli. Borgeat, Francois // Perceptual & Motor Skills;Dec97 Part 1, Vol. 85 Issue 3, p1136
Presents a study of the perceptual defence and vigilance to perinatal stimuli. Methodology used in the study; What the analysis indicated.
- Don't Be a Grunt. // Men's Fitness;Aug2002, Vol. 18 Issue 8, p22
Argues that grunting and noisemaking during exercise had no effect on the muscle force or the amount of weight lifted, according to professor Dennis O'Connell at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas.
- Chained conditioning and learning. Morgan, Gordon D. // Education;Fall95, Vol. 116 Issue 1, p77
Shows that much complex human behavior is not based on thought and careful decision-making strategies, but upon `chained conditioning.' Chained conditioning as a situation where, with reinforcement and expectation, one act leads to another according to well-understood Pavlovian principles.
