    Two current approaches to modelling naturalisticsequential routine action selection differ along twodimensions: (a) the number of systems requiredand (b) the nature of the underlying task represen-tation. We present findings from a study that sup- ports a combination of the two computational ac-counts, namely a familiarity-dependent basic sys-tem, interfaced with a higher-level supervisory sys-tem to bias it at crucial points in a sequence. In or-der to elaborate this position, we explore a connec-tionist reinforcement model of routine action that(a) learns goal-directed action sequences through acombination of exploration and exploitation, and(b) offers the prospect of being interfaced with asupervisory system.
