The proposal of the present research was to identify the emergent relations of training between stimuli shows simple, with composed stimuli of comparison. The made study corresponds to a research of type intrasubject. It was had ten university students, six men and four women, with ages between the 17 and 22 years of age that were chosen by convenience and received training in conditional discrimination through tasks of equalization to the arbitrary sample of three choices by means of a software in Visual Basic. In first and the second block of the conditional relations between stimuli settled down shows simple and compound stimuli of comparison. (ej. A1-B1B1; A2-B2B2; A3-C3C3 and B1-C1C1; B2-C2C2; B3-C3C3) and were satisfied three equivalent classes of three members each one (ej. A1A1-B1B1-C1C1), as well as relations equivalence-equivalence (ej. A1A2-B1B2-C2C2). Four of the ten participants showed emergent relations of symmetry, transitividad and equivalence along with equivalence-equivalence relations. These findings indicate that the training between simple and composed stimuli or vice versa produce own emergent relations of the equivalence of stimuli.
