Why can’t a person tickle himself?

The answer lies at the back of the brain in an area called the cerebellum, which is involved in monitoring movements.

When you try to tickle yourself, the cerebellum predicts the sensation and this prediction is used to cancel the response of other brain areas to the tickle.
