Relationship (as calculated with Spearman’s rho) between measures of alexithymia and brain activations in regions-of-interest that are relevant for facial emotion processing. The left column (A,C,E) depicts the magnitude of rho coded by color; in the right column (B,D,F), rho is only presented as different from zero if the according p < .05. Each row is related to one contrast: HA > NE (happy > neutral) in A and B. AN > NE (angry > neutral) in C and D. FE > NE (fearful > neutral) in E and F. l = left, r = right; AMG = amygdala, FFG = fusiform gyrus, vmPFC = ventro-medial pre-frontal cortex, STR = striatum, SMA = supplementary motor area, S1 = primary sensory cortex.
