[edit] Subjects

Subject group #1 (help)
Healthy heterosexual males
Subjects/♂/♀: 11 / 11 / 0
Age: 33 (19–45)
Handedness: Right
Nationality: German
Approval: Groningen University Hospital Medical Ethics Committee
Databases:

Group 1 of 11 right-handed healthy heterosexual males with 11 males and 0 females were included in the study. The German group had a mean age of 33 with a range from 19 to 45. The study on the human subjects was approved by the Groningen University Hospital Medical Ethics Committee.

[edit] Results

It is written that the "The data were realigned, stereotactically normalized into Talairach space", but the data was analyzed with SPM99, so the brain template is likely for MNI space. For statistical thresholding false discovery rate is used. The threshold was set on 0.05 corrected on cluster level.
