Abstract:The present study replicated the research by De Kleine and Van der Lubbe (in preparation) which found amongst others that the preparation of unfamiliar sequences requires more an abstract motor processing level. The transfer of learned motor skills to the other side of the body is thought to underlie abstract representations, as well. Hence, the original research was extended by examining the preparation of mirrored sequences. The results show that mirrored sequences were executed significantly faster than new sequences, indicating a transfer between hands as supposed by Verwey and Clegg (2005). The EEG measures were analyzed with the aid of the Contingent Negative Variation (CNV) as a general index of cortical motor preparation. The study replicated that learned sequences are prepared less on an abstract processing level which applies to mirrored sequences, too
