MRI data was collected using a 3T Siemens Magnetom scanner and 12-channel head coil (Siemens Healthcare, Erlangen, Germany) at the University of Reading Functional Imaging Facility. A 3D-structral MRI was acquired for each participant using a T1-weighted sequence (Magnetization Prepared Rapid Acquisition Gradient Echo (MPRAGE), repetition time (TR) = 2020 ms, echo time (TE) = 3.02 ms, inversion time (TI) = 900 ms, flip angle = 9°, field of view (FOV) = 250 × 250 × 192 mm, resolution = 1 mm isotropic, acceleration factor = 2, averages = 2, acquisition time = 9 min 7 s). Emotion regulation task-related fMRI data was collected in four identical blocks, using an echo planar imaging (EPI) sequence (211 whole-brain volumes, 30 sagittal slices, slice thickness = 3.0 mm, slice gap = 33%, TR = 2000 ms, TE = 30 ms, flip angle = 90°, FOV = 192 × 192 mm2, resolution = 3 mm isotropic, acquisition time = 7 min 10 s per block). Diffusion-weighted images (DWI) were collected with an EPI sequence (50 sagittal slices, slice thickness = 2.0 mm, TR = 6800 ms, TE = 93 ms, resolution = 2 mm isotropic, averages =2, acquisition time = 7 min 24 s). Diffusion weighting was distributed along 30 directions with a b value of 1000s/mm2. For each diffusion set, one volume with a b value of 0 s/mm2 was also acquired. Further structural and functional MRI data were acquired as part of this protocol but are not reported here.
