Linear correlations of anterior insula GMV with clinical/neurocognitive variables controlling for years of education. Description of data: Linear correlations of clinical variables and neurocognitive executive functioning to patient anterior insula GMV, controlling for years of education. Pearson’s r (normal score distribution) or Spearman’s ρ (non-normal score distribution) correlation analysis explored the linear relationship between the left or right anterior insula GMV (corrected for ICV) against patient demographic, clinical variables or z-scores of neuropsychological assessments of executive function (n = 133), controlling for years of education. *p < .05; **p < .01 (2-tailed).
