eelbrain.plot.brain.annot(annot, subject='fsaverage', surf='smoothwm', borders=False, alpha=0.7, hemi=None, views=('lat', 'med'), w=None, h=None, axw=None, axh=None, foreground=None, background=None, parallel=True, cortex='classic', title=None, subjects_dir=None, name=None)

Plot the parcellation in an annotation file

annot : str

Name of the annotation (e.g., “PALS_B12_LOBES”).

subject : str

Name of the subject (default ‘fsaverage’).

surf : ‘inflated’ | ‘pial’ | ‘smoothwm’ | ‘sphere’ | ‘white’

Freesurfer surface to use as brain geometry.

borders : bool | int

Show only label borders (PySurfer Brain.add_annotation() argument).

alpha : scalar

Alpha of the annotation (1=opaque, 0=transparent, default 0.7).

hemi : ‘lh’ | ‘rh’ | ‘both’ | ‘split’

Which hemispheres to plot (default includes hemisphere with more than one label in the annot file).

views : str | iterator of str

View or views to show in the figure. Options are: ‘rostral’, ‘parietal’, ‘frontal’, ‘ventral’, ‘lateral’, ‘caudal’, ‘medial’, ‘dorsal’.

w, h, axw, axh : scalar

Layout parameters (figure width/height, subplot width/height).

foreground : mayavi color

Figure foreground color (i.e., the text color).

background : mayavi color

Figure background color.

parallel : bool

Set views to parallel projection (default True).

cortex : str | tuple | dict

Mark gyri and sulci on the cortex. Presets: 'classic' (default), 'high_contrast', 'low_contrast', 'bone'. Can also be a single color (e.g. 'red', (0.1, 0.4, 1.)) or a tuple of two colors for gyri and sulci (e.g. ['red', 'blue'] or [(1, 0, 0), (0, 0, 1)]). For all options see the PySurfer documentation.

title : str

title for the window (default is the parcellation name).

subjects_dir : None | str

Override the default subjects_dir.

name : str

Equivalent to title, for consistency with other plotting functions.

brain : surfer.Brain

PySurfer Brain instance.
