... TMS-related outcome measures are variable, and thus their reliability has attracted considerable interest, that is, TMS can provide accurate and consistent measurements for individuals without physiological changes. Although some new techniques such as neuronavigation, robot TMS coil holding arm, and EEG-TMS closed-loop triggering strategy which could improve the accuracy of hotspot localization and reduce the variability of TMS-induced MEP (Goetz et al., 2019), these advanced techniques are more widely applied in some high-level lab for research studies. For clinical evaluation, the conventional methods of TMS using hand-hold assessment are still used by most medical institutions. ...
... The cTMS device allows adjustment of the pulse width [10,11]. It enables optimization, selectively targeting distinct neuronal populations, and quantification of the strength-duration and input-output (IO) behaviors and curves [12,13,14,15,16,17]. ...
