Table 6 Group FA differences in MDPs

From: Structural abnormality of the corticospinal tract in major depressive disorder

White matter region Total points in MDP Group differences % of points
Left posterior limb of the internal capsule 16 6 37.5
Right posterior limb of the internal capsule 17 14 82.4
Right superior corona radiata 17 1 5.9
Left external capsule 48 6 12.5
  1. Group differences were assessed using two-sample t-tests, and a false discovery rate (FDR) procedure was used to account for false positives as a result of multiple comparisons.
  2. FA fractional anisotropy, MDP maximum density path.
