Regions with a significant decrease in fMRI signal for increasing prospective losses at the time of the motor task (p < 0.001, uncorrected)

  • At the time of the motor task, no regions showed increasing activity for increasing prospective losses. Statistically significant activations are those found in a priori regions of interest (familywise error, *p < 0.05) and those regions that survive whole-brain correction for multiple comparisons (at *p < 0.05). Laterality - right (R); left (L); central (C).
