Abstract

In this issue of Neuron, Yokoi and Diedrichsen (2019) use a finger keyboard task to show that sequences are widely represented across cortex but that only single elements are represented in primary motor cortex. These results suggest that sequence tasks primarily probe the ability to order discreet actions rather than to execute a skilled continuous sequential action.
