# Examples Gallery#

The examples gallery provides working code samples demonstrating various analysis and visualization techniques. These examples often lack the narrative explanations seen in the tutorials, and do not follow any specific order. These examples are a useful way to discover new analysis or plotting ideas, or to see how a particular technique you’ve read about can be applied using MNE-Python.

Note

If example-scripts contain plots and are run locally, using the
interactive interactive flag with `python -i tutorial_script.py`

keeps them open.

Warning

These examples sometimes use simulations or shortcuts (such as intentionally adding noise to recordings) to illustrate a point. Use caution when copy-pasting code samples.
