Dear teachers,

The design of our study is a two groups (14 patients vs. 14 controls)*two conditions (stimulation A vs. stimulation B) type, and according to Dr. Yan' s comments, we perfomed mixed effect analysis using DPABI (the latest version). After GRF (voxel *P*=0.02, cluster *P*=0.05, two tails), two clusters connecting ACC remained in condition T map, while none remained in either group T or interaction F map (single tail). Meanwhile, we performed paired T test within each group based on corresponding masks of one sample T test maps (*P*=5*10^{-5}, cluter size>10, A+B), two clusters different from these above remained in patient group while none remained in control (which are consistent with hypothesis).

My questions are: 1. are statistic procedures above correct? if not, coud you please give me some advices. 2. whether paried T test are meaningful or not when no clusters found in interaction F map? Thank you!

## No. In this case, you can

No. In this case, you can only do the mixed effect analysis first to identify the meaningful interaction effect.

## Question about Interaction results

Dear Dr. Yan,

Now I have identified multiple very small clusters (about 10 or less voxels for each) from interaction F map using GRF (voxel

P=0.01, clusterP=0.05, single tailed) correction. Should I create mask based on these clusters to perform paired T test within each group and independent two sample T test between groups? Could you please share me some references about mixed effect analysis using DPABI or similar ones?Thank you again.

## You can just extract the

You can just extract the values for those clusters (define as ROIs) and plot them or use SPSS to do post-hoc analyses.

## Voxel P value and cluster P value for GRF

Dear Dr. Yan,

Is it right to set voxel P=0.02 and cluster P=0.05 when using GRF correction for T-test maps and voxel P=0.01 and cluster P=0.05 for F-test maps? If not, Could you tell me the right setings? Thank you.

## We put Voxel P at 0.001 and

We put Voxel P at 0.001 and cluster P at 0.05, also check Two-tailed.
