While Tony had suggested reading a book on multiple comparisons, I'm not sure that would get you all the way to the answer that you need. Depending on the voxel size that was used for your scan, it is possible to have upwards of 30,000 dependent variables; in this case to reach a significant finding using a typical Bonferroni correction you would need to observe a p value of less than 0.00000167. I'm not aware of any user written programs in Stata that are used for neuroimaging analysis, so I would suggest you may have an easier time doing this by using software designed for this type of analysis. Off the top of my head, I know there there are some modules in R for this, there are also a series of routines written in Python that are fairly common, and then there are commercially available packages in MatLab (among others). If you do a search for ANFI (another freely distributed package) you can probably find a link that would direct you to many of the programs funded by !
NIH for the development of neuroimaging analyses.
Has your data already been cleaned/prepped? If not that is an incredibly time consuming task that you should focus on first.

>> As stated in the FAQ, you are instructed to provide full references to material when referencing anything. Additionally, the correction methods used in neuroimaging analyses are likely to differ to some degree compared with those used in social sciences, since it is much less likely that someone in the social sciences would be working with several tens of thousands of dependent variables simultaneously. Most software for neuroimaging analyses will have built in support for these corrections (at least Brain Voyager does). It would be helpful to provide more explicit detail to the list if you would like any reasonable advice.
