Three experiments with 404 undergraduates examined the conditions under which transfer of stimulus differentiation occurs. Two experiments involved transfer in paired associate lists having identical stimuli and re-paired response terms compared with lists having different stimuli. Transfer of differentiation was obtained only when position was constant. In Exp II, no evidence of transfer of differentiation was obtained with either rhymes or concepts. In Exp III, Ss learned pairs in which the stimuli were single letters and then transferred to a list in which either rhyming or unrelated stimuli began with the same letters. Transfer was not differential. (18 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
