Can transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) of the cerebellum improve implicit social and cognitive sequence learning?
Int J Clin Health Psychol. 2023 Apr-Jun;23(2):100355. doi: 10.1016/j.ijchp.2022.100355. Epub 2022 Nov 15.ABSTRACTAccumulating evidence shows that the posterior cerebellum is involved in mentalizing inferences of social events by detecting sequence information in these events, and building and updating internal models of these sequences. By applying anodal and sham cerebellar transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on the posteromedial cerebellum of healthy participants, and using a serial reaction time (SRT) task paradigm, the current study examined the causal involvement of the cerebellum in implicitly learning sequences of social beliefs of others (Belief SRT) and non-social colored shapes (Cognitive SRT).
