From a neurological point of view, it is already well diffused in the literature that the primary motor area, primarily responsible for the motor, and the motor additional area involved in planning complex sequences are activated during movement execution [14].
There was no association between the impairment in the verb production task and the United Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) scores, but a positive corelation was found between UPDRS scores and activations in bilateral pre- and postcentral gyrus, the left frontal operculum, left supplementary motor area, and right superior temporal cortex.

We selected anatomical ROIs in bilateral frontal areas: inferior frontal gyrus (IFG) pars opercularis (Operc), pars triangularis (Tri), and pars orbitalis (Orb); precentral gyrus (PreC), insula, and supplementary motor area (SMA).
Changes in the M1 in the motor learning process shown with TMS studies can be summarized as the motor threshold (MT), short interval intracortical inhibition (SICI), intracortical facilitation (ICF) changes, and display of changes in the site and size in the localization of the motor area related to the movement in question for motor mapping.
Yet, there is now sufficient experience derived from formal clinical trials and off-label use in clinical practice to be able to state that the standard target area for rTMS is the supplementary motor area (SMA), according to Dr.
