Maltreated animals have reduced fractional anisotropy (FA) in right occipital white matter (WM). (A) Cluster of voxels (red) in right occipital WM where maltreated animals had significantly lower FA than controls (P < 0.005, uncorrected, ≥ 10 μL volume). In insets, green represents the mean FA skeleton. (B) FA in right occipital WM is negatively correlated with basal cortisol at one month of age (r = −0.561, P = 0.012).
