Supplementary Material

The Supplementary Material show raw BOLD time-series from each ROI for both patients with lesion-ROI overlaps in Supplementary Figure 1. The purpose of this figure is to illustrate that the time-series from the left IFG ROI, although it overlaps partially with the lesion, shows phasic responses that are similar to those observed for the right IFG ROI (where there is no lesion overlap). In addition, correlational analyses are provided to show that for both patients, the left IFG ROI time-series was more strongly correlated with the right IFG ROI than with the CSF time-series, and that the right-left IFG correlation was only marginally affected by removal of the CSF signal. These analyses demonstrate that the ROI-lesion overlap was unlikely to introduce artifactual effects into the left IFG signal.
