mne.viz.plot_montage(montage, scale_factor=20, show_names=True, kind='topomap', show=True, sphere=None, verbose=None)[source]

Plot a montage.

montageinstance of DigMontage

The montage to visualize.


Determines the size of the points.


Whether to show the channel names.


Whether to plot the montage as ‘3d’ or ‘topomap’ (default).


Show figure if True.

spherefloat | array_like | str | None

The sphere parameters to use for the cartoon head. Can be array-like of shape (4,) to give the X/Y/Z origin and radius in meters, or a single float to give the radius (origin assumed 0, 0, 0). Can also be a spherical ConductorModel, which will use the origin and radius. Can be “auto” to use a digitization-based fit. Can also be None (default) to use ‘auto’ when enough extra digitization points are available, and 0.095 otherwise. Currently the head radius does not affect plotting.

New in version 0.20.

verbosebool, str, int, or None

If not None, override default verbose level (see mne.verbose() and Logging documentation for more). If used, it should be passed as a keyword-argument only.

figinstance of matplotlib.figure.Figure
