Oh wonderful! Just the paper I’d been hoping for. Organization of action sequences and the role of the pre-SMA To understand the contribution of the human presupplementary motor area (pre-SMA) in sequential motor behavior, we performed a series of finger key-press experiments. Experiment 1 revealed that each subject had a spontaneous tendency to organize or “chunk” a long sequence into shorter components. We hypothesized that the pre-SMA might have a special role in initiating each chunk but not at other points during the sequence. https://journals.physiology.org/doi/full/10.1152/jn.00651.2003
