Lookup voxel activations with the neurosynth.org database

REQUIRED: SPM(only tested on 8) must be installed.
You can use this script in two ways:
1) Pass a filename of an analyze-format statmap, or
2) Estimate an SPM model and load it into the workspace with the "Results" button (in order to produce an xSPM structure)

The script will then scrape neurosynth.org for anatomical information associated with your activations.

%example 1A:
spm_mongo_neurosynth(xSPM); %loaded via the spm 8 results interface
%example 1B:
spm_mongo_neurosynth('my_statmap.hdr'); %note that img/nii also work
%example 2:
