Table 2 Go/Nogo-Task Performance (Boys only)

From: Normal response inhibition in boys with Tourette syndrome

Measure Healthy Comparison N = 15 Tourette Syndrome N = 20 repeated measure ANOVA (Sidak-adjusted Post-hoc tests)a
  Mean (SD) Mean (SD)  
Success rate (%) b    Letter: F(2,66) = 247.3**, (X > B**, A > B**)

  1. a only effects with p < .10 are reported
  2. b marginal means across runs and standard deviations of factor "Group"
  3. c Go (X) was frequent (4/6 of all trials)
  4. d Go (A) was infrequent (1/6 of all trials)
  5. e Nogo (B) was infrequent (1/6 of all trials)
  6. f reaction-times of all three runs collapsed into a grand mean, thus slight differences to the marginal means reported for analysis of 'Reaction time of correct responses (ms)' emerge.
  7. + p < .1
  8. ** p < .01
