  1. The last four columns (coordinates and z-value) refer to the main peak of activation in the cluster. Coordinates refer to Montreal Neurological Institute. Results thresholded at p < 0.05 FDR-corrected. PCC = posterior cingulate cortex; TPJ = temporo-parietal junction; MPF = medial prefrontal cortex; BA = Brodmann areas; k = cluster size; L = left hemisphere, R = right hemisphere.
