4 mynas received 1000 discrimination problems in a modified Wisconsin General Test Apparatus, using 100 multidimensional stimulus objects. Learning set was acquired, as indicated by an asymptotic Trial 2 performance, clearly above chance. Retention of this learning set over a 150-day interval, and transfer to new objects were also found. Further experimentation was designed to obtain hypothesis estimates based upon Ss' performance.
