The study of discrimination and generalization in animals traditionally involves stimuli that are simple, uniform, and restricted in time or space. In recent years, the area of stimulus control has been expanded with the use of stimuli that are complex, extended in time or space, and incorporate or represent natural objects, events, or locations. The contributors to this unique volume have emphasized controlling functions of complex stimulus events -- such as location or duration -- and their relation to cognitive processes in animals. The chapters cover a wide array of topics, including spatial cognition, categorization, pattern perception, numerosity discriminations, imagery, and spatial tracking, thereby addressing the question of how complex events are perceived, processed, and organized. This volume goes beyond other recent books on animal cognition in that it specifically places some well-known phenomena within the context of stimulus control.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The revolution that is well underway and significantly advanced by Honig and Fetterman's book is an exciting integration of theory and methods that relate animals' psychologies to our own....This impressive volume is not only for the student of animal perception, learning, and behavior. It is for all students of human behavior, be they in the clinic, school, industry, or elsewhere."
-Contemporary Psychology

"...stimulating articles....a most impressive collection of studies....Anyone even casually interested in finding out what modern behavioural psychologists can persuade animals to reveal about their internal worlds...would profit from reading this book."
-The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology

"...delightful papers on several aspects of stimulus control in various behaviors....The volume is excellently documented, data frequently appearing in graphs and in references to work published elsewhere."
-Perceptual and Motor Skills
