Regional distribution of associations between grey matter volume and grip strength. a The regional analysis revealed widespread significant associations between grip strength and grey matter volume after controlling for potential confounders. T-statistics are visualized here. b The associations remained significant (FDR corrected P < 0.01) after additionally controlling for total intracranial volume, implying that grip strength relates to region GMV independently of overall brain volume. Brain regions showing the highest correlations with grip strength primarily included the ventral striatum, hippocampus, thalamus, temporal pole, parahippocampal gyrus, temporal fusiform cortex, brain stem, pallidum, and putamen
