Low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (LF-rTMS) provided promising results to facilitate the language recovery in stroke patients with non-fluent aphasia 1. The contralesional inhibitory LF-rTMS treatment can induce the functional reorganization within language networks and recovery of language function in chronic aphasic stroke 2, 3. This study evaluated the right microstructural integrity of the arcuate fasciculus before the intervention and its association with the language improvement after the LF-rTMS treatment.
