  • The brain area, laterality of hemisphere, cluster size, cluster p value, peak T value, and peak coordinate of the fMRI results for the neural correlates of the CPE at the midpoint between problem presentation and answer obtained by using GLM2. Methods for analyses and statistical thresholds are described in Materials and Methods and Results.
