Abstract:The Theory of Event Coding (TEC) posits an automatic association between a consistent effect and an action, when the effect follows the action within close temporal proximity. One would expect this association to develop between a motor chunk and an effect, but previous unpublished research (Verwey, 2008) found no such association. The possibility is explored that action–effect associations develop at a single key press or at the chunk as a whole. The results did not support this notion, but do show an association between the motor chunk and the effect, unlike Verwey (2008). The TEC appears capable of predicting an action–effect association for more complex actions as well
