  1. SD = standard deviation, NA = not applicable, + CI =10th and 90th percentile confidence interval around median, Ratio++ = ratio of disruption correction mean (or friction correction mean) to compensation mean. *Friction correction differs from compensation and disruption correction mean p < .0001.
