A matched-to-sample procedure was used to train two conditional relations, which resulted in the emergence of a third relation without training (e.g. if A=B and B=C, then A=C). Two procedures were used to assist the training process. The first method was called thematic training and consisted of training an individual to match physically dissimilar stimuli based on common category membership (e.g. boat and car are both modes of transportation). The second training method was stimulus-control shaping and involved initially matching two identical shapes. The comparison stimulus was then altered over a series of fifteen steps into the desired response stimulus.
