Jackknife sensitivity analysis
This procedure performs a jackknife analysis, which consists in repeating the mean analysis as many times as studies have been included, discarding one different study each time, i.e. removing one study and repeating the analysis, then putting that study back and removing another study and repeating the analysis, and so on. The idea is that if a significant brain region remains significant in all or most of the combinations of studies it can be concluded that this finding is highly replicable.
