The coordinates of the foci of activation in Montreal Neurological Institute space, the T-values, and the cluster sizes for the control and autism spectrum disorders (ASD) groups are shown in the left and right parts, respectively.The extent threshold of p < .05, corrected for multiple comparisons, with the height threshold of p < .01 (uncorrected) were used.
