The Sequencing of Action

  • Donald G. MacKay
Part of the Cognitive Science Series book series (COGNITIVE SCIEN)


Any theory of action must deal with three basic questions: What is the structure of the components representing skilled behavior? How are these components activated in proper sequence? And how are these components timed or produced at the appropriate rate? The previous chapter examined the first of these problems, the structure of the components for organizing everyday actions, and the present chapter examines the second, how these components become activated in proper sequence.
