  • In two stimulation periods, −80 ms to ipsiversive cue onset and +80 ms from Go in contraversive trials, there was a drop in performance <80% (in bold and with asterisk, significant in at least one session, Fisher's exact test, Bonferroni corrected, p < 0.05). Hit rate drops <80% that did not reach significance are in italics.
