The transitive inference (TI) paradigm has been widely used to examine the role of the hippocampus in generalization. Here we consider a surprising feature of experimental findings in this task: the relatively poor transitivity performance and levels of hierarchy knowledge achieved by adult human subjects. We focussed on the influence of the task instructions on participants' subsequent performance - through a single-word framing manipulation which either specified the relation between items as transitive (i.e.
