I found the installation instructions on the following SPM Wiki Page:
You will need to follow these steps to get SPM working:
1) Unzip spm12.zip in a folder of your choice, such as C:\Users\login\Documents\MATLAB\spm12).
2) Start MATLAB and add SPM into your path, either using File > Set Path > Add Folder... or typing the following in the MATLAB Command window:
>> addpath C:\Users\login\Documents\MATLAB\spm12
3) Launch SPM by using the command
>> spm
However, please note that the SPM Wiki page has been marked as outdated. You might need to figure out some additional steps to get this working.

If you are on windows and "right-click/Extract All...", then it creates a nested directory which means MATLAB doesn't recognise spm12. For example if you want spm to be in C:/Users/You/Documents/MATLAB, after extracting it you will end up with C:/Users/You/Documents/MATLAB/spm12/spm12/... . If you add the first spm to the path it won't work. You have to cut the spm12 sub-folder out into the parent path so that it looks like this: C:/Users/You/Documents/MATLAB/spm12/... . Or just add the spm12 sub-folder.
