The ability to recognize sequential patterns of external events enables us to predict their future course and thus to plan and execute actions based on current perceptions and previous experiences.

Particularly, the prediction of size engages premotor areas involved in hand movementsdoi:10.1006/nimg.2001.1043 pmid:11906220 fatcat:7p25txrhbvc5tjhssug5nvwiza
