Performance in the Instrumental Learning Task (ILT). (a) Participants learned the associations between the fruit stimulus pairs and the according responses very well, independent of TBS condition and across discrimination conditions. (b) Performance in the devaluation phase was worse in the incongruent discrimination condition compared to the congruent and standard condition. TBS groups did not differ in their performance. (c) In the critical slips-of-action phase, cTBS led to a significant increase in the percentage of slips-of-actioncompared to the imTBS and iTBS groups as well as the no-stimulation group. Inhibition of the ilPFC favored the use of the habitual system, in particular in the standard discrimination condition that could be completed using either the habitual or the goal-directed system. Error bars indicate SEM. *p < 0.05. ***p < 0.001.
