I am unsure about the following multiple comparisons question:
Let's say I've acquired whole-brain fMRI data on patients and
controls. I have behavioral variables on patients only, and run
correlations of five behavioral variables with global measures
extracted from each patient's whole-brain statistical results, such as
peak activation in the entire brain, or volume of activation in some
specified area etc.
In a separate ROI analysis (not a voxel analysis) on the same fmri
data I compare patients and controls for their activation in 5
previously chosen anatomic ROIs.
Should my multiple comparisons correction extend to all 10 p-values of
the five correlations and the five t-tests? I tend to think it should.
Can you mention a reference that will help clarify this situation?
Many Thanks in advance!
