Table 4 Composite z-scores on different cognitive domains for the two groups

Cognitive domainControl, n = 96Stroke/TIA, n = 163F-valueANOVA*p value
All comparisons controlled for age, NART, education, depression (HAM-D score >10 were excluded), and multiple comparisons (with Bonferroni correction).
* p < 0.05.
NART = National Adult Reading Test; HAM-D = Hamilton Depression Rating Scale; ANOVA = analysis of variance.
