aThere was a significant difference between groups for age (ANOVA; F(2, 26) = 4.3, p = .02), as the NC group was older (see Results for statistical comparisons).

Demographic and neuropsychological variables, means (SDs), are reported for all subjects, except for lesion-specific measures (laterality and chronicity), which are only reported for the patient groups. Chronicity is the time between lesion mPFC onset and experimental testing. There were no significant differences between groups for education, chronicity, or neuropsychological measures (ANOVA, each p > .05).

M = male; F = female; R = right; L = left; B = bilateral; N/A = not applicable.
