13.16 Cfunc Definition

The second type of contextual cue is one that specifies which stimulus functions should be transformed according to the specified relation. This kind of contextual cue is called a Cfunc. We pronounce it “see funk” because it sounds really funky that way. Why are contextual cues needed to specify which stimulus functions should be transformed? Because any stimulus or event has multiple psychological and perceptual functions. Not all of these functions are transformed on the basis of its relation to another stimulus.

Types of Contextual Cues
Crel: Specifies a relation between stimuli
Cfunc: Specifies stimulus functions to be transformed
