Erratum

        An error in the text has been discovered in the commentary “Deep Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Smoking Cessation: Is Going Deeper Better?” by Barr and George (2014;76:678–680). The affected section of incorrect text begins on the 5th line of the second paragraph and currently states “… employing the H-coil, which has been shown to target brain regions approximately 5–7 cm deep. This focal depth with the H-coil is very exciting…”. The corrected version of this text is as follows: “ … employing the H-coil, which has been shown to target brain regions up to approximately 3–4 cm deep. This depth with the H-coil is very exciting…”.

            In this issue of Biological Psychiatry, Dinur-Klein et al. (1) report on an impressive proof-of-concept study using a randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled trial design that demonstrates 10-Hz deep repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) using H-coil methods administered bilaterally to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and insular cortex could reduce short-term biochemically verified cigarette consumption and nicotine dependence levels and increase short-term and long-term smoking abstinence rates.
