Abstract:A study was conducted in which 24 participants took part in a discrete sequence production task accompanied by a secondary tone counting task. Based on the Dual Processor Model the hypothesis was made that task integration is possible in the DSP-task. The participants learned to reproduce two sequences in six practice blocks. At the same time, half of the participants counted low pitched tones, the others ignored the low pitched and the high pitched tones. This was followed by a testing phase, where the secondary task condition (tone counting) changed because the tone was presented at a different point of the sequence. There was a condition with no tone, one condition with the tone on the third position just like in the practice phase and one condition with the tone on the fifth position. The results do not indicate task integration through suffering performance in the secondary task condition and therefore do not strengthen the position that task integration takes place through the cognitive processor.
