Each cluster greater than 400 mm3 is reported. The region corresponding to the largest cluster is reported first, with the total cluster size listed in parentheses. Additional clusters of interest that surpassed a threshold of 100 mm3 are also reported. L and R indicate ALE clusters located in the left and right hemispheres, respectively. Inf = inferior; GP = globus pallidus; Put = putamen; PGH = parahippocampal gyrus. BAs are provided to differentiate activations in larger regions that occur in multiple contrasts.
