  1. Partial correlation analyses were conducted with age and sex controlled for. Positive correlation values indicate greater increases in GFA values correlate with greater reductions in RMSE scores
  2. CST: corticospinal tract; DLPFC: dorsolateral prefrontal cortex; FS: frontal-striatum; GFA: general fractional anisotropy; ILF: inferior longitudinal fasciculus; R: right; RMSE: root-mean-squared-error; SLF: superior longitudinal fasciculus; TR: thalamic radiation
