Measurements of TMS parameters by observer 1. Sample size

*n*= 18 for TT-TMS and*n*= 17 for cTMS. Each subject was examined eight times by each method. One subject (S4) was examined seven times with cTMS and eight times with TT-TMS. SICI was measured with the A-SICI and the T-SICI parallel protocol. Only values measured at ISIs 1 ms (SICI1ms), 2.5 ms (SICI2.5ms), 3 ms (SICI3ms), 1–3.5 ms (SICI1–3.5ms), and 1–7 ms (SICI1–7ms) are depicted. Each TMS parameter was measured twice in each session.↵a Point estimates for each subject were calculated as geometric means of their measurements. Data are displayed as medians with interquartile ranges [IQR] of subjects’ point estimates.

↵b Normally distributed data for each subject was arithmetically averaged to calculate group mean (±SE) and SD.
