In everyday tasks, selecting actions in the proper sequence requires a continuously updated representation of temporal context. Many existing models address this problem by positing a hierarchy of processing units, mirroring the roughly hierarchical structure of naturalistic tasks themselves. Although intuitive, such an approach has led to a number of difficulties, including a reliance on overly rigid sequencing mechanisms and a limited ability to address both learning and context sensitivity… CONTINUE READING
