Abstract:Research done by Verwey (2010) showed that young adults use motor chunks performing a discrete sequence production task (DSP). The present study examined whether the Flexion-Extension (FE) task used motor chunks. Young adults participated in an experiment which repeated practice of two different familiar sequences for both the DSP and FE-task. A questionnaire to determine explicit knowledge and a visuaspatial working memory-test were performed. Results showed no indication of motor chunks being used. Chunking indexes based on theory by Verwey (2010) which measured possible motor chunking showed no correlation between the FE and DSP task. Participants did improve on test scores but showed no use of motor chunking.
