The statistical tests are performed over parameters extracted from different GLMs. To obtain consistency within the table, note that some t statistics of the section “Additional Effect on the First Trial of Blocks” have flipped sign compared with the same analyses reported in the main text. Significant p values are marked with asterisks.
