Unfortunately, Neurosynth’s search feature was somewhat buggy, and we decided not to incorporate it into NiMARE. While we do plan to support more advanced searching in Neurostore (which was originally tentatively named NeuroStuff), that new service won’t be up and running for a while. If you want to know more about our plans, you can see NiMARE’s About page, which briefly describes a proposed ecosystem.
At the moment, I think your best approach would be to write some custom code combining lists from individual feature searches. I know it’s suboptimal, but on the bright side it would be much more transparent than a complex search function.
For example, if you have a list of IDs from two searches (e.g.,
happiness_ids), the following should work:
fear AND happiness:
fear OR happiness:
I hope that helps.
