Meta-Analysis, Mega-Analysis, and Task Analysis in fMRI Research

Abstract
Lloyd (2011) presents highly suggestive results regarding the specificity of the link between particular brain areas and cognitive tasks. Some of his evidence is derived from the analysis of data from the BrainMap database (available: www.brainmap.org), which has become a fundamental resource for the conduct of functional neuroimaging meta-analysis. In the present note, some observations regarding the possibilities and pitfalls of meta-analysis of functional neuroimaging data are given as a complement to Lloyd's excellent exposition of the topic. Additionally, some comments are made on the particular meta-analytic results presented by Lloyd.Functional neuroimaging studies usually present their findings in the form ..
