Microstructural brain abnormalities of children of idiopathic generalized epilepsy with generalized tonic-clonic seizure: A voxel-based diffusional kurtosis imaging study



The above article, published online on 3 May 2014 in Wiley Online Library (wileyonlinelibrary.com), has been retracted by agreement between the authors, the journal Editor in Chief, and Wiley Periodicals, Inc. The retraction has been agreed due to errors in the results of the published article. The authors stated in the Methods section that ‘. . . only clusters with a false discovery rate (FDR)-corrected P-value less than 0.05 were included.’ However, it was subsequently discovered that the FDG-correction had not been performed correctly. Had this been carried out in the right way, the difference between the case group and the control group in most of the presented regions would have been insignificant.
