Regional distribution of associations between grey matter volume and cognitive function. a Significant associations were observed between behavioral phenotypes and regional grey matter volume after controlling for potential confounders (FDR corrected P < 0.01). The top 4 behavioral phenotypes showing the highest similarities of association map with grip strength were visualized here. b Comparison between GMV-grip strength and GMV-behavior association maps. The brain association map of grip strength was highly similar to that of the behavioral phenotypes regardless of whether the total intracranial volume was added as a covariate. The T-statistic map correlations reach statistical significance in 11 and 16 of all 30 behavioral outcomes in cases of including or not including the total intracranial volume as an additional covariate (*FDR corrected P < 0.05)
