Dissociation of Stimulus Compounds by Pigeons

Used a matching-to-sample (MTS) procedure to investigate short-term memory for compound visual stimuli in 10 mixed-breed pigeons. In Exp I, a symbolic MTS procedure was used. Three Ss were trained to match element samples, and 3 were trained to match compound samples. Findings indicate that the compound-trained group did not learn to match the compound samples in terms of element matching rules but rather processed them as unitary events. In Exp II, Ss were trained to match either element or compound samples in a true MTS task. Both groups were able to match elements and compounds in the transfer test. Findings show that at least some compound stimuli were represented in a unitary, nonanalytic fashion until the S was exposed to the elements of the compound in isolation from the compound.
