  1. Notes: Regions reported in table are significant after small volume correction, p < .05. Multiple foci are reported within the same structure when local maxima are greater than 12 mm apart. All labels are derived from AAL atlas (see text). * this maximum is near midline and the cluster has significant overlap with the cerebellar vermis. It also is contiguous with the left cerebellar crus I finding, which is why the cluster size for the two is reported as the same number. The cluster size is the number of contiguous voxels in the cluster at an uncorrected p < .01.
