|Subject group (help)
|Right-handed Finnish-speaking volunteers
||10 / 5 / 5
A group of 10 right-handed Finnish-speaking volunteers with 5 males and 5 females were included in the study.
The group had a mean age of 26 with a range from 22 to 31.
The subjects were the same as in an earlier study.

For fMRI T2*-weighted gradient-echo-planar scans were acquired with a .
For aMRI T1-weighted Inversion recovery echo-planar scans were acquired with a .
Coordinates are reported as "Peak voxel's Talairach coordinates", but the template is not clear:
The authors write "The functional data were aligned [...] to a standard-space template" and cites Jenkinson 2002.
This probably means that it is the MNI template in FSL, i.e., not strichtly Talairach.
