Table 4 Clusters with significantly more BOLD signal in the ASD group versus the TD comparison group when contrasting food images with the blurred visual baseline control condition

From: Response of neural reward regions to food cues in autism spectrum disorders

  1. Spatial coordinates are in MNI space. The reverse contrast, TD > ASD, yielded no significant clusters at this threshold. ASD, autism spectrum disorder; BOLD, blood oxygenation level dependent; L, left; MNI, Montreal Neurological Institute; R, right; TD, typically developing; uncorr, uncorrected
