Abstract Incidental sequence learning has been concep-
tualized as involving a shift from stimulus-based to plan-
based performance (e.g., Tubauet et al. in Journal of Exper-
imental Psychology: General 136:43­63, 2007). We ana-
lyzed the response time (RT) data of two macaque monkeys
that were trained for thousands of trials on a sequential
reaching task in a study by Matsuzaka et al. in Journal of
Neurophysiology 97, 1819­1832 (2007). The animals
learned to respond predictively to a repeating 3-element
sequence. During a transitional period, RT distributions
