Herein, an approach was designed to test the possible use of picture cues to signal reward in a delayed matching task.
Target choice preference corresponding to picture cues was tested among three bumblebee (Bombus impatiens) colonies using photograph cues (presented prior to target stimuli) corresponding to one of four target stimuli.
Photograph cues were the only predictor of corresponding target reward, presented in stable locations.
Rewarded and unrewarded tests show a choice preference significantly higher than chance for targets matching the cue.
A dynamic model of supportive relationships emerged, with trust, unity, and support as the three core categories of these relationships.The data suggest that the quality of the relationship between an individual with ASD and the support provider can be a critical factor within effective support.
