Low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) provided promising results to facilitate the language recovery in stroke patients with non-fluent aphasia. This study demonstrated a contralesional inhibitory rTMS treatment can modulate the brain functional networks compare to the conventional therapy. The modulated functional networks were further correlated with the improvement of language performance after the rTMS treatment.
