  1. Overview about subject-related characteristics including age, Edinburg Handedness Inventory (EHI) scores, and discomfort during stimulation according to the visual analogue scale (VAS). Moreover, the individual amount of correctly named objects during baseline testing, the resting motor threshold (RMT), and the electrical field strength that was applied to the four hotspots during stimulation are shown. In this context, the electrical field strength for each mapping point was automatically calculated and saved by the system
