I know that tracing (interactive picking of a point on the surface of the brain and plotting its time course) can be done after plotting the stc object, but I would like to know if there is any way to pre-specify the location (or coordinates) of traces before plotting the stc object so that the traces do not need to be manually specified after the stc object is plotted.
Hello @aqil.izadysadr, I’m tagging @GuillaumeFavelier, our 3D viz expert
mne.viz.Brain.add_foci() is the method that lets you programmatically add points to a brain. However it’s not yet implemented for the pyvista backend, only for the older / deprecated mayavi backend (which didn’t have that nice pane showing the timecourse of each picked vertex).
Thank you @drammock! So, does that mean that I cannot implement it in Pyvista currently? Will future MNE updates have this option?
it is planned, but I don’t know how soon. @GuillaumeFavelier keeps track of our PyVista 3D plotting to-do list and might know how hard it will be / how soon it might happen.
Thank you @drammock! I will be looking forward to that.
