  1. 1age in years at study begin;
  2. 2 tinnitus laterality as reported by the patient; L: left R: right;
  3. 3 side of hypermetabolic activity in the FDG PET (the side of increased activity was target for rTMS stimulation);
  4. 4 duration of tinnitus in months at study begin;
  5. 5 the order of stimulation according to randomization: "A, S" stands for active rTMS first and sham rTMS second and "S, A" for the inverse order;
  6. 6 Tinnitus scores as revealed by the Tinnitus Questionnaire of Goebel and Hiller (TQ) [73];
  7. 7 ΔTQ: treatment response, indicated as the difference between tinnitus scores on day 11 and day 1 for active rTMS and sham rTMS, respectively.
