Database(s):
Feature(s): Talairach coordinate searching

AMAT is a Matlab program including a database for searching after Talairach coordinates among published studies. It is developed by Antonia Hamilton and distributed from:

http://www.antoniahamilton.com/amat.html

The Talairach coordinates in AMAT is stored in a comma-separated values (CSV) file. This file has eight columns

Neuroanatomical label 
String, e.g., "L precentral gyrus"
Brodmann area(s) 
One or more labels to indicate Brodmann area
Functional area 
Often (alway?) abbreviation, e.g., "M1"
Talairach coordinate for left-right
Back-front Talairach coordinate
Down-up Talairach coordinate
Space indicator 
"T" or "M" to indicate the stereotaxic space
Description 
Short describtion of the experiment/contrast, e.g., " Imagine movement > movement"
PMID 
PubMed identifier as an integer, e.g., "14755595"
