9. CANONICAL REPRESENTATION OF STIMULI AND DISCRIMINATION PROBABILITIES We have seen that the conjunction of Regular Minimality and Nonconstant Self-Dissimilarity has a powerful restrictive eect on the possible theories of perceptual discrimination. In particular, it rules out two most traditional ways of modeling discrimination probabilities: by monotonically relating them to some distance measure imposed on stimulus space, and by deriving them from well-behaved random representations selectively attributable to stimuli being compared.

A1 and a2 in O1 are psychologically equal because # (a1 > y) = # (a2 > y) for every y in O2 ; these two stimuli therefore are assigned a common label, a. Equivalence classes a and b are treated as single stimuli in O1 and O2 , respectively, with # (a> b) put equal to # (x> y) for any x M a> y M b. The Regular Minimality condition is assumed to hold for these “reduced” stimulus sets (sets of equivalence classes, shown by the two straight lines). 7 1 1 Thus, fx1 ; x2 g ! xa ; fy1 ; y2 g ! ya ; and so forth.
