Figure 2

Significant between-group differences in CBF between control subjects and those with IGA. The IGA group showed increased CBF in the left inferior temporal lobe, left parahippocampal gyrus and amygdala, right medial frontal lobe/anterior cingulate cortex, bilateral insula, right middle temporal gyrus, right precentral gyrus, left supplementary motor area, left cingulate gyrus, and right inferior parietal lobe. Decreased CBF was found in the left middle temporal gyrus, left middle occipital gyrus, and right cingulate gyrus (p < 0.05, AlphaSim-corrected). The t-score bars are shown on the right. Red indicates IGA > controls and blue indicates IGA < controls. Note: The left part of the figure represents the patient’s right side. IGA = Internet gaming addiction; CBF = cerebral blood flow.
