\method{point_estimate}{BFBayesFactor}(x, centrality = "all", dispersion = FALSE, ...)
\item{x}{Vector representing a posterior distribution, or a data frame of such
vectors. Can also be a Bayesian model (\code{stanreg}, \code{brmsfit},
\code{MCMCglmm}, \code{mcmc} or \code{bcplm}) or a \code{BayesFactor} model.}

\item{centrality}{The point-estimates (centrality indices) to compute.  Character (vector) or list with one or more of these options: \code{"median"}, \code{"mean"}, \code{"MAP"} or \code{"all"}.}

\item{dispersion}{Logical, if \code{TRUE}, computes indices of dispersion related to the estimate(s) (\code{SD} and \code{MAD} for \code{mean} and \code{median}, respectively).}

\item{...}{Additional arguments to be passed to or from methods.}

\item{effects}{Should results for fixed effects, random effects or both be returned?
Only applies to mixed models. May be abbreviated.}

\item{parameters}{Regular expression pattern that describes the parameters that
should be returned. Meta-parameters (like \code{lp__} or \code{prior_}) are
filtered by default, so only parameters that typically appear in the
\code{summary()} are returned. Use \code{parameters} to select specific parameters
for the output.}

\item{component}{Should results for all parameters, parameters for the conditional model
or the zero-inflated part of the model be returned? May be abbreviated. Only
applies to \pkg{brms}-models.}
Compute various point-estimates, such as the mean, the median or the MAP, to describe posterior distributions.
There is also a \href{https://easystats.github.io/see/articles/bayestestR.html}{\code{plot()}-method} implemented in the \href{https://easystats.github.io/see/}{\pkg{see}-package}.
