  1. The data are presented for each of the two stimulus conditions separately. Cells contain Spearman partial correlation coefficients along with the corresponding two-sided p values in parentheses. The correlation coefficients are computed on the data of all participants with ASD, with participant’s age, sex, and KBIT-2 IQ composite score being used as covariates. Cells with p values below 0.05 are highlighted in italic. n indicates the number of participants
