Table 1 Statistical parameter mapping analysis of activation patterns (local maxima) obtained from 18FDG PET scan in stimulated animals compared to sham

From: Chronic abdominal vagus stimulation increased brain metabolic connectivity, reduced striatal dopamine transporter and increased mid-brain serotonin transporter in obese miniature pigs

Coordinate of local maximum (x, y, z in mm) Pcorrected (voxel level) T-value (voxel level) Tentative anatomic localization
2, − 11, − 8 0.001 7.46 Periaqueducal grey
− 4, − 6, − 6 0.001 6.96 Periaqueducal grey
6, 9, − 2 0.001 6.32 Ventral anterior thalamus R
− 0, 9, − 9 0.003 5.46 Medial hypothalamic area
− 18, 7, − 4 0.002 6.06 Amygdala L
− 10, 28, − 6 0.004 4.88 Insula L
  1. The analysis was performed with the cluster size of 100 voxels. Values of P were presented using FDR correction. Tentative anatomic localization is given based on interpretation of the projection of the activation pattern on the pig brain anatomic atlas published by our group [22]
