This thesis investigated the theoretical processes that underlie perceptual and functional categorisation: perceptual categorisation refers to the process of forming an integrated representation of a pattern of stimulation and functional categorisation refers to the process of integrating otherwise equivalent patterns of stimulation according to their uses or consequences. Investigation of perceptual categorisation in people and of functional categorisation in rats provided results that place important constraints on the nature of the involvement of elemental and configural processes.
