The relationship between recent life stress (LESS) and current anxiety symptoms (MASQ-AA). The relationship between recent life stress (LESS) and current anxiety symptoms (MASQ-AA) measured at least 1 year after initial assessment, plotted at low (−1 SD), intermediate (mean), and high (+1 SD) levels of left hippocampal gray matter volume. Scatterplots reflect partial correlations between LESS and STAI-T after controlling for gender, age, and time since MRI scan. MASQ-AA scores reflect standardized residuals.
