  1. aBest ANCOVA indicates whether there is a different spatial relationship between SHAM and TAC groups. Same lines indicate that the DTI parameter and histological measurement are associated, regardless of TAC or SHAM group (i.e. correlation); parallel lines indicate a similar spatial relationship between variables for both groups, but with an offset; separate lines indicate a different spatial relationship between groups
