Table 6 Spearman's correlations related to resected volume (tumor + margin in cc), age at surgery and time elapsed between surgery and evaluation variables and all assessed neuropsychological variables for the astrocytoma and medulloblastoma groups.

From: Differential prefrontal-like deficit in children after cerebellar astrocytoma and medulloblastoma tumor

ASTROCYTOMA (n = 13) Spearman Correlations RESECTED VOLUME (mean = 49.23 ± 26.97 cc)
Phonologic Fluency -0.744, p = 0.002
Semantic Fluency -0.551, p = 0,026
Rey-Exactness -0.572, p = 0.020
Dentate nucleus affected 0.602, p = 0.015
ASTROCYTOMA (n = 13) Spearman Correlations AGE AT SURGERY (mean = 8.24 ± 3.95)
WCST-Intents -0.732, p = 0.003
Rey-copy type (type 1 better than type 5) -0.864, p < 0.0001 (negative correlation: better copy)
ASTROCYTOMA (n = 13) Spearman Correlations TIME surgery-evaluation (mean = 3.25 ± 2.74)
WCST-Correct Responses 0.577, p = 0.025
MEDULLOBLASTOMA (n = 7) Spearman Correlations AGE AT SURGERY (mean = 7.12 ± 2.06)
