Constant interaction with a dynamic environment-from riding a bicycle to segmenting speech-makes sensitivity to the sequential structure of the world a fundamental dimension of information processing. Accounts of sequence learning vary widely, with some authors arguing that parsing and segmentation processes are central, and others proposing that sequence(More)
Constant interaction with a dynamic environment —from riding a bicycle to segmenting speech — makes sensitivity to the sequential structure of the world a crucial dimension of the cognitive system. Accounts of sequence learning vary widely, with some authors arguing that parsing and segmentation processes are central, and others defending the notion that(More)
