Abstract:In this experiment it was investigated whether stimuli still have an influence on an automated sequence behavior. The theoretical underpinning was the dual processor model (DPM), which indicates that two different processors try to trigger a response. The cognitive processor reacts to visual indications and triggers each response one by one. The motor processor works with motor chunks, and is able to concatenate them. The hypothesis of the present study was, that stimuli have an influence on automated behavior in a direct sequence production task. The results found in this experiment confirm the hypothesis. Automated sequence behavior is still influenced by stimuli, due to the fact that the cognitive processor is also active and sometimes triggers a response, instead of the motor processor.
