Voxel-based lesion-symptom mapping (VLSM)

VLSM is a MATLAB toolbox for evaluating statistical relationships between damage to specific brain regions and resulting deficits (Bates et al., 2003). VLSM can be used for the analysis of both discrete and gradiated lesions (i.e. voxel-based morphometry), and in both cases incorporates permutation tests for robust assessment of statistical significance.
