  1. p FDR < .05; two-tailed; |T| > 3.66; cluster size ≥ 10 voxels
  2. BA: Brodmann area; MNI: Montreal Neurological Institute; Tmax: Student's t-value (local maximum); L: left; R: right; positive T values indicate higher brain activation during blocked design compared with event-related design whereas negative T values indicate higher brain activation during event-related design compared with blocked design
