  1. Statistics are expressed as mean ± standard deviation. * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01, *** p < 0.001. Student t-test and ANOVA were used to identify differences between the LTCRL scores and sample characteristics. We divided samples into two age groups based on the average age of the participants (46.92)
