BrainMap is an online community database that archives the results of published functional and anatomical neuroimaging experiments and their associated metadata (http://brainmap.org). Experimental results and metadata are archived into the database according to an expert-refined taxonomy developed to describe the experimental procedure employed in each publication within the database. Users may input publications and their associated neuroimaging results to the database using the Scribe application (http://brainmap.org/scribe) or search the database for publications of interest by applying filters in the Sleuth application (http://brainmap.org/sleuth). Coordinates of activation resulting from filtered searches may be downloaded and exported for further meta-analysis using the GingerALE application (http://brainmap.org/ale), which uses the activation likelihood estimation algorithm (ALE; Turkeltaub et al. 2002; Eickhoff et al. 2009).
