Top of figure: Orthogonal planes (lateral, frontal, transversal) showing significant clusters (voxelwise thresholded at p < 0.01 [z = 2.32]; cluster-wise corrected at p < 0.001). Bottom of figure: Coronal slices showing the continuous Z-map for the respective comparison. Abbreviations: PostCG = postcentral gyrus, PCL = paracentral lobule, PreCG = precentral gyrus, PCUN = precuneus, FFG = fusiform gyrus, ITG = inferior temporal gyrus, TPOmid = temporal pole (middle temporal gyrus), ORBinf = orbitofrontal cortex (inferior frontal gyrus), TPOsup = temporal pole (superior temporal gyrus), CAL = calcarine fissure and surrounding cortex, DCG = median cingulate and paracingulate gyrus.
