Prediction of regional frontal gray matter volumes by white matter lesion (WML) volume
Log WML volume
Dependent variable β SE p
Medial orbitofrontal cortex −0.16 0.07 0.04
Lateral orbitofrontal cortex −0.07 0.08 0.40
Rostral anterior cingulated cortex −0.11 0.08 0.18
Caudal anterior cingulated cortex −0.11 0.09 0.20
Frontal pole −0.07 0.09 0.43
Superior frontal gyrus −0.09 0.08 0.27
Rostral middle frontal gyrus −0.04 0.08 0.65
Caudal middle frontal gyrus −0.11 0.08 0.17
Pars opercularis −0.15 0.08 0.08
Pars orbitalis −0.01 0.09 0.88
Pars triangularis −0.09 0.08 0.26
Precentral gyrus −0.14 0.08 0.08

Independent variables are log-transformed WML volume, age, gender, years of education, and group status and dependent variable is each regional frontal gray matter volume. β is the standardized regression coefficient.
