What are neuroimaging meta-analytic procedures?

Abstract

Activation likelihood estimation (ALE) meta-analyses allow investigators to integrate the results of multiple neuroimaging studies, potentially yielding novel results that may not have been evident in the individual studies. Here, we provide a brief, introductory description of ALE methods for readers without extensive expertise in neuroimaging.

This Section of Epidemiology and Psychiatric Sciences regularly appears in each issue of the Journal to cover methodological aspects related to the design, conduct, reporting and interpretation of clinical and epidemiological studies. The aim of these Editorials is to help developing a more critical attitude towards research findings published in international literature, promoting original research projects with higher methodological standards, and implementing the most relevant results of research in every-day clinical practice.

Corrado Barbui, Section Editor and Michele Tansella, Editor EPS
