Anatomical and Brodmann's areas, MNI coordinates of the maxima within each cluster, Z values, cluster size, and p values corrected at cluster level of the regions that showed a main effect of the considered variables. Coordinates are in millimeters: x = distance to right (+) or left (−) of the mid-sagittal plane; y = distance anterior (+) or posterior (−) to vertical plane through anterior commissure; z = distance above (+) or below (−) intercommissural (AC–PC) line.

aThis locus is comprised in the cluster with the main peak at −30 −50 −14 with size 8061.
