  • Cluster p values (p < 0.05) with family-wise error correction across the whole brain. Map threshold p < 0.005, extent threshold ≥ 10 voxels;

  • *p < 0.05 with small volume correction (6-mm radius) using coordinates from a previous study with BDM bidding (De Martino et al., 2009; see Materials and Methods).
