Table 4 Brain regions with significantly (one tailed Z > 2.75, p < 0.005) greater mental stress-induced activation or deactivation, as measured with [15O]H2O positron emission tomography, in women (n = 44) relative to men (n = 77) participants with CAD but not mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia
