mne.write_head_bem(fname, rr, tris, on_defects='raise', overwrite=False, verbose=None)[source]

Write a head surface to a fiff file.


Filename to write.

rrarray, shape (n_vertices, 3)

Coordinate points in the MRI coordinate system.

trisndarray of int, shape (n_tris, 3)

Triangulation (each line contains indices for three points which together form a face).


What to do if the surface is found to have topological defects. Can be 'raise' (default) to raise an error, or 'warn' to emit a warning. Note that a lot of computations in MNE-Python assume the surfaces to be topologically correct, topological defects may still make other computations (e.g., mne.make_bem_model and mne.make_bem_solution) fail irrespective of this parameter.


If True (default False), overwrite the destination file if it exists.

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.
