Inductive reasoning and semantic cognition: More than just different names for the same thing?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (6):715-716 (2008)
Abstract
We describe evidence that certain inductive phenomena are associated with IQ, that different inductive phenomena emerge at different ages, and that the effects of causal knowledge on induction are decreased under conditions of memory load. On the basis of this evidence we argue that there is more to inductive reasoning than semantic cognition
