Abstract

Transitive Inference is a process of reasoning that has in the past been demonstrated to occur in various animals - including monkeys, rats and pigeons - as well as humans, including young children. This project documents the development of a piece of software for conducting experiments into Transitive Inference in humans. The software was in the form of a video game modification and developed using the Unreal Developers Kit, based on the Unreal engine. Several experiments were conducted to demonstrate that the software could, in future, be used to gather valid scientific data.
