  • *p < 0.05, FWE cluster-level corrected across the whole brain with a voxel-level cut-off of p < 0.001.

  • **Survive small volume correction, p < 0.01, FWE cluster-level.

  • MNI coordinates denote the distance (in mm) from the anterior commissure, with positive x values indicating a location right of midline, positive y values indicating a location anterior to the anterior commissure, and positive z values indicating a location dorsal to a plane containing both the anterior and the posterior commissures. R, Right; L, left; BA, Brodmann area; N/A, Not Applicable.
