  1. Total physical activity (TPA) and daily average of moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) correlated with functional connectivity strength (FC-st) in three main clusters. The list of regions of interest (ROIs) upon each significant main cluster fall is shown (in alphabetical order). The percentage of each ROI captured by each cluster is presented in brackets
