Position-specific activity in the region of interest (ROI) defined according to (A) a connected < non-connected contrast (ROI 1, Figure 2B, green, F6,132 = 0.88, p=0.5), (C) a link 2 < link 3 contrast (ROI 2, Figure 2B, red, F6,132 = 1.96, p=0.08) and (E) the peak coordinate in Chadwick et al. (2015) (ROI 3, F6,132 = 1.86, p=0.09). The tests reported in Figure 2C–E are also significant if performed after removing object-specific activity from the neural data. This was achieved by subtracting the mean activity for each object before testing for (B) a difference in activity for link 2 versus link 3 transitions in ROI 1 (t22 = 2.10, p=0.048), (D) a difference in activity for connected versus non-connected stimuli in ROI 2 (t22 = 2.39, p=0.03), or (F) a distance effect in ROI 3 (F2,44 = 6.68, p=0.003). Error bars show mean and standard error of the mean. a.u.: arbitrary units.
