The analysis was carried out within the SPELL > CIRCLES mask depicted in Figure 2. Correction for multiple comparisons was applied (cluster-wise p = .005, cluster level p = .05) and Talairach coordinates for the peak voxels are reported. Also reported is the cluster in the left fusiform gyrus that was used in a VOI analysis and was shown to be sensitive to frequency but not to length.
