    • A functional-analytic model of analogy using the relational evaluation procedure 

      Stewart, Ian; Barnes-Holmes, Dermot; Roche, Bryan (Springer Nature, 2004-10-01)
      Analogical reasoning is conceptualized by Relational Frame Theory as responding in accordance with an equivalence relation between equivalence or other types of derived stimulus relations. The purpose of this study was to ...
    • A functional-analytic model of analogy: a relational frame analysis. 

      Stewart, Ian; Barnes-Holmes, Dermot; Roche, Bryan; Smeets, Paul M (Society for the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, 2002-11-01)
      The aim of this study was to explore a behavior-analytic model of analogical reasoning, defined as the discrimination of formal similarity via equivalence-equivalence responding. In Experiment 1, adult humans were trained ...
    • Derived stimulus relations, semantic priming, and event-related potentials: testing a behavioral theory of semantic networks 

      Barnes-Holmes, Dermot; Staunton, Carmel; Whelan, Robert; Barnes-Holmes, Yvonne; Commins, Sean; Walsh, Derek; Stewart, Ian; Smeets, Paul M; Dymond, Simon (Society for the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, 2005-11-01)
      Derived equivalence relations, it has been argued, provide a behavioral model of semantic or symbolic meaning in natural language, and thus equivalence relations should possess properties that are typically associated with ...
    • Matching derived functionally-same stimulus relations: equivalence-equivalence and classical analogies 

      Carpentier, Franck; Smeets, Paul M.; Barnes-Holmes, Dermot; Stewart, Ian (Springer Nature, 2004-04-01)
      Previous studies have shown that, after being trained on A-B and A-C matching tasks, subjects match not only functionally-same B and C stimuli (stimulus equivalence), but also BC compounds with same-class elements and BC ...
    • Relating derived relations as a model of analogical reasoning: reaction times and event-related potentials 

      Barnes-Holmes, Dermot; Regan, Donal; Barnes-Holmes, Yvonne; Commins, Sean; Walsh, Derek; Stewart, Ian; Smeets, Paul M; Whelan, Robert; Dymond, Simon (Society for the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, 2005-11-01)
      The current study aimed to test a Relational Frame Theory (RFT) model of analogical reasoning based on the relating of derived same and derived difference relations. Experiment 1 recorded reaction time measures of ...
    • Understanding false belief as generalized operant behavior 

      Mchugh, Louise; Barnes-Holmes, Yvonne; Barnes-Holmes, Dermot; Stewart, Ian (Springer Nature, 2006-07-01)
      The current work reports 2 experiments that investigate the development of false belief from the perspective of Relational Frame Theory. The true and false belief test protocol used across both experiments contained a range ...
