A new SPM toolbox for combining probabilistic cytoarchitectonic maps and functional imaging data
A new, MATLAB based toolbox for the SPM2 software package is introduced which enables the integration of probabilistic cytoarchitectonic maps and results of functional imaging studies and an easy-to-use tool for the integrated analysis of functional and anatomical data in a common reference space.

Coordinate‐based activation likelihood estimation meta‐analysis of neuroimaging data: A random‐effects approach based on empirical estimates of spatial uncertainty
The authors showed that the revised ALE‐algorithm overcomes conceptual problems of former meta‐analyses and increases the specificity of the ensuing results without loosing the sensitivity of the original approach, and may provide a methodologically improved tool for coordinate‐based meta-analyses on functional imaging data.

Action observation activates premotor and parietal areas in a somatotopic manner: an fMRI study.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to localize brain areas that were active during the observation of actions made by another individual. Object- and non-object-related actionsExpand
ALE meta-analysis of action observation and imitation in the human brain
The present meta-analysis summarizes and amends previous descriptions of the human brain networks related to action observation and imitation, and identifies cortical areas consistently involved in action observed and imitation by combining activation likelihood estimation (ALE) meta- analysis with probabilistic cytoarchitectonic maps.

Broca's region revisited: Cytoarchitecture and intersubject variability
These morphologic asymmetries of area 44 provide a putative correlate of the functional lateralization of speech production and show that macroscopic features are not reliable landmarks of cytoarchitectonic borders. Expand
Human Primary Auditory Cortex: Cytoarchitectonic Subdivisions and Mapping into a Spatial Reference System
In future, the transfer of in vivo structural and functional data into the same spatial reference system will enable accurate comparisons of cytoarchitectonic maps of the primary auditory cortex with activation centers as established with functional imaging procedures. Expand
Assignment of functional activations to probabilistic cytoarchitectonic areas revisited
The principle approaches for anatomical localisation of functional activations based on probabilistic cytoarchitectonic maps are demonstrated by exemplary analysis of an anterior parietal activation evoked by visual presentation of hand gestures. Expand
Cytoarchitectonic mapping of the human amygdala, hippocampal region and entorhinal cortex: intersubject variability and probability maps
For the first time, cytoarchitectonically verified maps of the human amygdala, hippocampus and entorhinal cortex are provided, which take into account the stereotaxic position of the brain structures as well as intersubject variability. Expand
Action observation activates premotor and parietal areas in a somatotopic manner: an fMRI study
Results bring the previous concept of an action observation/execution matching system (mirror system) into a broader perspective: this system is not restricted to the ventral premotor cortex, but involves several somatotopically organized motor circuits. Expand
Polymodal Motion Processing in Posterior Parietal and Premotor Cortex A Human fMRI Study Strongly Implies Equivalencies between Humans and Monkeys
Functional MRI in normals while presenting moving visual, tactile, or auditory stimuli revealed increased neural activity evoked by all three stimulus modalities in the depth of the intraparietal sulcus, ventral premotor, and lateral inferior postcentral cortex. Expand
