Serial Processes

Serial Processes are mental tasks that must be carried out in sequence, one after another, rather than simultaneously. Although we are able to perceive multiple stimuli at the same, and we often perform many activities at once, certain tasks require serial processing to fully attend to the stimulus. For example, when reading this sentence you cannot process all the words in one glance; instead, you read them in sequence, from left to right.
