Test statistics calculated by Wilcoxon-test.
Mdn: median.
3YFU: 3-year follow-up (36 month/3 years after baseline).
5YFU: 5-year follow-up (60 month/5 years after baseline).
Disinhibition: scores range from 0 to 8; higher scores indicate higher disinhibition.
Cognitive control: scores range from 0 to 8; higher scores indicate higher cognitive control.
Flexible control: scores range from 0 to 5; higher scores indicate higher flexible control.
Rigid control: scores range from 0 to 3; higher scores indicate higher rigid control.
