Table 1.

Brain regions along with their stereotactic coordinates (Talairach space) where SPM showed significant higher metabolism for the food stimulation without cognitive inhibition than for the food stimulation with cognitive inhibition for the male subjects. None of the regions showed lower metabolism without cognitive inhibition than with inhibition. The corrected p value was set at P < 0.01
