The goal is to predict the PASAT score. pasat represents the PASAT score at each vist. subject_id represents the subject ID. cca represents the fractional anisotropy tract profiles from the corpus callosum. sex indicates subject's sex. rcst represents the fractional anisotropy tract profiles from the right corticospinal tract. Rows containing NAs are removed.

This is a subset of the full dataset, which is contained in the package refund.
