Extract:

Anatomical MRI study of hippocampus and amygdala in patients with current and remitted major depression reports a study with magnetic resonance imaging brain scanning measuring hippocampus and amygdala volumes on patients with major depression and controls.

[edit] Subjects

There is the same number of subjects and the same number of females in the two major groups. Regardless of this fact the researcher report a Fisher's exact test on this!

[edit] Results

Table 2 has 22 brain volumes reported.

The unit must be cm3 and deviation the standard deviation of the data (page 144, column 2, section 3.2)
