Implicit skill learning underlies not only motor but also cognitive and social skills, and represents an important aspect of life from infancy to old age. Earlier research examining this fundamental form of learning has demonstrated that learning relies on motor and perceptual skills, along with the possible role of oculomotor learning. The goals of the present study were to determine whether motor or perceptual cues provide better prompts to sequence learning and to remove the possibility of oculomotor learning during the task. We used a modified version of the probabilistic ASRT task, which allowed the separation of motor and perceptual factors. Our results demonstrated that motor and perceptual factors influenced skill learning to a similar extent.
