Our overarching priority has been to develop method and theory to clarify the ideas of James and Skinner on the importance of streams of thought and of behavior. We describe experimental methods to quantitatively control and theoretical methods to explain the local continuity, or moment-to-moment nature, of thought and behavior in time.

Keywords: optimality in behavior streams; optimality in categorizing; local-global attentional switching; artificial grammar learning; local and global statistical learning in serial response times; behaving theories
