Over the last decades, many researchers have focused on the cognitive basis and neural substrate of sequential motor skills. In order to investigate these, I many years ago developed the discrete sequence production (DSP) task. It typically involves two series of 3 to 7 key presses that are practiced for about 500 trials each during a couple of hours. This research led to a cognitive framework for sequential motor behavior (C-SMB, Verwey et al., 2015). In this talk I will go one step further and focus on the neural substrate of discrete keying sequences by discussing an fMRI (Verwey et al., 2019) and two TMS studies (Verwey et al., 2002, in press).
