  1. Underlined figures represent statistically significant values.
  2. aUnivariate general linear model, Corrected Model: F(87,279) = 1.29, p = 0.07, R2 = 0.29
  3. bAlthough the p-value was < 0.05, the model statistics failed to show any statistical significance as described above.
  4. cUnivariate general linear model, Corrected Model: F(23,343) = 1.78, p = 0.016, R2 = 0.11
