MODENESI, Rafael Diego et al. Emergent drink preferences: a systematic replication of Barnes-Holmes, Keane, Barnes-Holmes and Smeets (2000). Temas psicol. [online]. 2009, vol.17, n.2, pp. 569-578. ISSN 1413-389X.

The present study was a systematic replication of Barnes-Holmes et al. (2000), with adults and children as subjects. First, the conditional relations AB and BC were trained with MTS procedure. The A stimuli were two emotive words (e.g. CANCER and HOLIDAY), B were two nonsense syllables and C were the labels X and Y. After training, two soft drinks with similar flavors were presented with one of the two labels. Subjects were required to choose which one was the most pleasant. After that, the same test was conducted except that the labels were changed. The subjects were then tested for equivalence relations between emotive words and labels. The results indicate the chosen responses between two soft drinks were controlled by flavor independently of its label.
