Procedure and Results for a Paradigm-Based ALE Meta-Analysis. In paradigm-based, or function-based, meta-analyses, the BrainMap database is searched for a paradigm or task of interest by (a) constructing an appropriate set of search criteria within Sleuth. Studies matching this query are (b) downloaded to Sleuth's workspace panel for further filtering, and (c) the observed location results of these experiments can be visualized on a glass brain. Using GingerALE, these locations can be meta-analyzed using the ALE approach, and (d) the ALE results can be visualized using Mango.
