Typically, statistical learning is investigated by testing the acquisition of specific items or forming general rules. As implicit sequence learning also involves the extraction of regularities from the environment, it can also be considered as an instance of statistical learning. In the present study, a Serial Reaction Time Task was used to test whether the continuous versus interleaved repetition of a sequence affects implicit learning despite the equal exposure to the sequences. The results revealed a sequence learning advantage for the continuous repetition condition compared to the interleaved condition. This suggests that by repetition, additional sequence information was extracted although the exposure to the sequences was identical as in the interleaved condition. The results are discussed in terms of similarities and potential differences between typical statistical learning paradigms and sequence learning.
