the processing of information one step at a time. (326)
execution of instructions one at a time; inefficient and no longer used, after being replaced by concurrent processing.
refers to the relaying and analysis of sensory information along a single pathway, with each higher stage of the pathway performing some relatively more complex processing. This is well demonstrated in the visual system
sequential processing by two or more processing units
A theoretical interpretation of information processing in which several sources of information are processed in a serial order; only one source being attended to at a time. See also parallel processing.
