  • All presented results are significant at an FDR-corrected threshold of p < 0.05 (two-tailed) for each of six statistical tests (corresponding to significance tests for accuracy maps derived from using all possible pairs of the three tested distance domains for training and testing data). To obtain average peak accuracy values, a mask of each of these clusters was applied to average accuracy maps for each of the six tests, and peak percentage accuracies were averaged across tests for each cluster. BA, Brodmann's area; COG, center of gravity; R, right; L, left; LG, lingual gyrus; CUN, cuneus. All coordinates are in Talairach space.
