Previous studies have shown a dissociation of implicit and explicit knowledge of a repeating sequence in a perceptuomotor skill developed by M. J. Nissen and P. Bullemer (1987). P. Perruchet and M. A. Amorim (1992) raised the concern that the dissociation was an artifact of the cued-recall task used to assess explicit knowledge and reported high correlations between implicit and explicit memory (as assessed by recall and recognition). We report an experiment that addresses their concerns about the explicit test in which we found evidence that supports the dissociation.
