  • Clusters of voxels with signal amplitude that reliably varied in proportion with the object state-change ratings, after removing variance predicted by the action imageability ratings out. Each contrast is thresholded at p < 0.05, corrected for multiple comparisons. There were no statistically reliable voxel clusters with Experiment 2 > Experiment 1. Talairach coordinates and anatomical labels indicate the location of the peak voxel of each cluster. DMPFC, dorsomedial prefrontal cortex; L., left; R., right.
