Full data is provided as well as aggregated data used for data analysis. The data relates to synchronization inaccuracy of a target note under three dTMS conditions (sham, right dorsal premotor cortex, and right intraparietal sulcus stimulation). Participants are musicians of different levels of piano expertise (non-pianists, amateur pianists, semi-professional pianists, and professional pianists). Participants synchronized with a pre-recorded co-performer, whose performances were presented as audio-only stimuli, audio-video or audio-animation stimuli. Target notes had either a short or long rhythmic duration.
