When the discriminanda were two similar hues the pigeons' performance was significantly better on the vertical than on the horizontal task. This was also found in an experiment in which the subjects could see only monocularly. When, however, the discriminative stimuli were patterns of different orientation or markedly dissimilar hues then the performance on the horizontal task had an advantage over that on the vertical one. A horizontal advantage also obtained when similar hues were discriminated on keys clustered closely together. Pigeons thus seem more adept at solving successive conditional discriminations on horizontal than on vertical pairs of keys except when similar hues are displayed on widely separated keys where the reverse is true. It is hypothesized that colour vision inequalities due to regional retinal differentiations are responsible for this latter effect.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Delius, Juan</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Jahnke-Funk, Elke</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2012-10-08T11:59:52Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Current Psychological Research ; 1 (1981), 3-4. - S. 203-213</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2012-10-08T11:59:52Z</dc:date> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
