  • ASD diagnosis was confounded with group, but a separate ANOVA based on only subjects with ASD produced similar results to the ANOVA based on the full sample.

  • a When there were significant between-group differences, groups with the same superscript in the same row did not differ from each other.

  • b When there were significant between-group differences, groups with the same superscript in the same row did not differ from each other.

  • c Significant differences were based on ANOVAs; main effects for group are presented because there were no significant group × ID interactions.
