Comparison of FA maps between pre- and post-rTMS treatment for stroke patients in RT group. The FA results of one-sample -test for stroke patients of pre- (a) and post-rTMS treatment (b). (c) Significantly changed brain areas are superimposed on the che2bet hemisphere of the Montreal Neurological Institute template brain in the three-view drawing (). The warm and cold tones separately indicate the increased and decreased FA value after rTMS treatment. (d) Bars represent the mean FA values. Vertical bars indicate estimated standard errors. Compared with the pre-rTMS treatment, the mean FA showed a significant increase after rTMS treatment in bilateral posterior limb of internal capsule (PLIC), left precentral gyrus (PG), right supplementary motor area (SMA), right middle frontal gyrus (MFG), and right corona radiate (CR).
