A priori region of interest: Anterior cingulate cortex. A) Voxel-wise main effect of group for the contrast Match Shapes > Match Faces, along with Match Shapes (Angry distractor) > Match Angry, Match Shapes (Fear distractor) > Match Fear, and Match Shapes (Happy distractor) > Match Happy, showing anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) displayed on statistical F-map at p < 0.05; cluster size >10 contiguous voxels (family-wise error corrected for multiple comparisons across small volumes of interest). Color scale reflects F-score. B) Bar graphs depicting extracted parameter estimates of activation from the ACC ROI activation within each group showing Healthy Controls exhibited ACC activation, whereas, Generalized Social Anxiety Disorder showed no ‘activation’.
