    It is argued that event perception and routine sequential action production share a range of characteristics (e.g., similar levels of automaticity, the involvement of sequentially and hierarchically organised schemata, and the coupled operation of predictive and monitoring processes). With this in mind, and in an effort to develop a mechanistic account of event perception, we consider how an existing model of routine sequential action production might be applied in the domain of event perception. We focus the discussion on the multiple roles of prediction in the two domains, and consider the implications of the application of the model of action production to event perception, and for sequential processing more generally.
