First paragraph (this article has no abstract)

Following publication of our article [1], we became aware that the treatment protocol for the single-site group is incorrectly stated in the methods section. All patients in this group are stimulated over the left temporoparietal cortex (not over the temporoparietal cortex contralateral to the tinnitus percept). Using the same stimulation site for all patients in the single-site group avoids the otherwise subsequently necessary division into (possibly dysbalanced) subgroups and hence ensures straightforward data analyses and interpretability, especially with respect to the longitudinal imaging data.
