Terminology

  • Definitions

    • Talairach space: Standard coordinate system based on postmortem sectioning of 1 woman's brain
    • Montreal Neurologic Institute (MNI) space: Average template of 305 MRI scans used to standardize neuroimaging research by warping scans of each participant to this common imaging space
    • Activation likelihood estimation method: Statistical approach for conducting meta-analyses on neuroimaging studies with goal of determining brain regions active across multiple studies
    • Meta-analysis: Statistical technique used to combine results of multiple studies
    • Metadata: Information about a study (e.g., experimental task, subject characteristics) outside of data analyzed or results reported in study
