Shortcut for a Butterfly-plot with a time-linked brain plot

y : NDVar ([case,] time, source)

Data to plot; if y has a case dimension, the mean is plotted. y can also be a testnd t-test result, in which case a masked parameter map is plotted (p ≤ 0.05).

cmap : str | array

Colormap (name of a matplotlib colormap).

vmin : scalar

Plot data range minimum.

vmax : scalar

Plot data range maximum.

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

Freesurfer surface to use as brain geometry.

views : str | iterator of str

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

hemi : ‘lh’ | ‘rh’

Plot only this hemisphere (the default is to plot all hemispheres with data in y).

w : scalar

Butterfly plot width (inches).

h : scalar

Plot height (inches; applies to butterfly and brain plot).

smoothing_steps : None | int

Number of smoothing steps if data is spatially undersampled (pysurfer Brain.add_data() argument).

mask : bool | matplotlib color

Shade areas that are not in src. Can be matplotlib color, including alpha (e.g., (1, 1, 1, 0.5) for semi-transparent white). If smoothing is enabled through smoothing_steps, the mask is added as data layer, otherwise it is added as label. To add a mask independently, use the Brain.add_mask() method.

xlim : scalar | (scalar, scalar)

Initial x-axis view limits as (left, right) tuple or as length scalar (default is the full x-axis in the data).

name : str

The window title (default is

butterfly_plot : plot.Butterfly

Butterfly plot.

brain : Brain

Brain plot.
