Variable Control Experimental p
  (n = 11) (n = 7)  
Right Cerebellum 4.91 (0.56) 5.31 (0.18) 0.05

  1. Results are means (SD). Statistical analysis used is Brown-Forsythe Univariate Analysis of Variance F*, two-tailed. MRI tissue volumes were measured in cubic millimeters, per structure. To control for ventricular size, all measures were expressed as a percentage of total parenchyma which is total brain tissue adjusted for the ventricles.
