Monkey see, monkey do: Learning relations through concrete examples

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (2):150-151 (2008)
Penn et al. argue that the complexity of relational learning is beyond animals. We discuss a model that demonstrates relational learning need not involve complex processes. Novel stimuli are compared to previous experiences stored in memory. As learning shifts attention from featural to relational cues, the comparison process becomes more analogical in nature, successfully accounting for performance across species and development
