Open AccessPublished:February 11, 2022DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.brs.2022.02.001
      The authors would like to correct an error in the above published Letter to the Editor.
      The authors thank Dr. He for their comments and apologize for an error in paragraph 4. The term “active motor threshold” should be replaced by “resting motor threshold”. The corrected sentence should be:
      “The TBS parameters were based on the standard TBS protocols, with 3-pulse 50-Hz bursts given every 200 ms (at 5 Hz) and an intensity of 80% resting motor threshold”.
      The authors apologize for this error.

          After severe brain injury, some individuals develop prolonged disorders of consciousness (DOCs), including coma, unresponsive wakefulness syndrome (UWS) and minimally conscious state (MCS). Patients with UWS are awake but show no signs of awareness, whereas fluctuating signs of consciousness are preserved in MCS [1,2]. The large communication-disabled population has brought tremendous pressure on the families and society in general. However, no effective pharmacological treatment options exist for DOCs, and the lack of evidence-based treatments highlights the need of alternative neuromodulator treatments [3].
