class eelbrain.plot.brain.SequencePlotter(subject=None, subjects_dir=None)

Grid of anatomical images in one figure


For plots with multiple layers, layers are added to the brain in the order they were added to the SequencePlotter.


Plot an evoked response or TRF (i.e., a time by source NDVar) in 50 ms bins between 0 and 300 ms. Use the extrema() method to plot peak activity in each time bin. This will plot the most extreme value including its sign, and thus show positive and negative effects:

# Bin the data
ndvar_binned = ndvar.bin(step=0.050, start=0, stop=0.3, func='extrema')
# Initialize the SequencePlotter and set parameters for visualizing the brain
sp = plot.brain.SequencePlotter()
# Add the data to be plotted
# Generate the figure with multiple brain plots
p = sp.plot_table(view='lateral')
# Save as you would normally'Figure.pdf')

Plot specific time points in an evoked response or TRF (ndvar). To do this, simply add mutiple data objects. Make sure to pass a colormap or vmax parameter to make the color-scale consistent between plots:

cmap = plot.soft_threshold_colormap('xpolar-a', 0.0001, 0.010)
sp = plot.brain.SequencePlotter()
for t in [0.050, 0.100, 0.200]:
    sp.add_ndvar(ndvar.sub(time=t), cmap=cmap, label=f'{int(t*1000)} ms')
p = sp.plot_table(view='lateral', orientation='vertical')

Visualize a test result, by separately adding condition means and a difference map that is masked by significance:

res = testnd.TTestRelated('srcm', 'condition', 'a', 'b', match='subject', data=data)
vmax = 3  # explicitly set vmax to make sure that the color-maps agree
sp = plot.brain.SequencePlotter()
sp.add_ndvar(res.c1_mean, vmax=vmax, label='a')
sp.add_ndvar(res.c0_mean, vmax=vmax, label='b')
sp.add_ndvar(res.masked_difference(), vmax=vmax, label='a - b')
p = sp.plot_table(view='lateral', orientation='vertical')

Plot a source by time test result, showing how a difference map evolves over time:

res = testnd.TTestRelated('srcm', 'condition', 'a', 'b', match='subject', data=data)
difference = res.masked_difference()
binned = difference.bin(step=0.200, start=0.200, stop=1.00, func='extrema')
sp = plot.brain.SequencePlotter()
p = sp.plot_table(view='lateral', title='a = b')
