Table 2 Linear mixed effects models assessing change on cognitive indices from baseline incorporating demographic, baseline cognitive, and imaging variables (using the WCG ROI and all participants). Partial regression coefficients (B), standard errors (SE), and t statistics are reported for each predictor; r2 values are reported for each linear mixed effect model
