Linear model of MBH/amygdala signal ratio (L)

βP
IL-60.020.005*
CRP<0.010.29
HOMA-IR−0.010.057
Triglycerides<0.010.800
  • MBH/amygdala signal ratio (L) was tested as a dependent variable on BMI, IL-6, HOMA-IR, triglycerides, and CRP, whereas only IL-6 revealed significant results. P value: significance of effect of specified variable on MBH/amygdala (L), β: Regression coefficient. Twenty-three observations were deleted owing to missingness. Two outliers in the triglyceride data and one outlier in the IL-6 data were excluded from the analyses. Obesity was included in the model as a dichotomous variable at a cutoff at BMI >30 kg/m2.

  • * Significant P value (P < 0.05).
