This book focuses on the relationship between brain responses and cognitive processes through meta-analysis of brain imaging data. The increase in use of meta-analysis techniques is due to the approach of data pooling from several experiments, which provides a concrete result related to brain images in comparison to other statistical analysis. The book discusses the importance of meta-analysis in reducing the dimensions of the images collected through data pooling, providing a convenient representation. Meta-analysis also helps to determine the complex interconnection of brain regions. The book provides a brief history of meta-analysis starting from data pooling and its application to psychological, social sciences, and cognitive neurosciences. It presents problems related to data pooling, including variability and reliability of data.

Keywords:   brain responses, cognitive processes, brain imaging, meta-analysis, data pooling, statistical analysis
