Abstract:The objective of the current study was to determine whether recurring stimuli influences sequence learning. A total of 24 participants took part in the study. They were divided into two groups. The groups performed a Discrete Sequence Production task, that consisted of a practice phase and a test phase. The analysis of the data revealed that there were no significant differences between the two groups with regard to the response times. Besides that, there was no relationship between the groups and the response times on Key. The conclusion that could be drawn from this is that recurring stimuli do not influence sequence learning. However, small differences in response times have been found, that, - even though they were not significant - could be an indication of an effect. Therefore, the study should be replicated with a larger participant sample to increase the results.
