mne.minimum_norm.apply_inverse#

mne.minimum_norm.apply_inverse(evoked, inverse_operator, lambda2=0.1111111111111111, method='dSPM', pick_ori=None, prepared=False, label=None, method_params=None, return_residual=False, use_cps=True, verbose=None)[source]#

Apply inverse operator to evoked data.

Parameters
evokedEvoked object

Evoked data.

inverse_operatorinstance of InverseOperator

Inverse operator.

lambda2float

The regularization parameter.

method“MNE” | “dSPM” | “sLORETA” | “eLORETA”

Use minimum norm 1, dSPM (default) 2, sLORETA 3, or eLORETA 4.

pick_oriNone | “normal” | “vector”

Options:

  • None

    Pooling is performed by taking the norm of loose/free orientations. In case of a fixed source space no norm is computed leading to signed source activity.

  • "normal"

    Only the normal to the cortical surface is kept. This is only implemented when working with loose orientations.

  • "vector"

    No pooling of the orientations is done, and the vector result will be returned in the form of a mne.VectorSourceEstimate object.

preparedbool

If True, do not call prepare_inverse_operator().

labelLabel | None

Restricts the source estimates to a given label. If None, source estimates will be computed for the entire source space.

method_paramsdict | None

Additional options for eLORETA. See Notes for details.

New in version 0.16.

return_residualbool

If True (default False), return the residual evoked data. Cannot be used with method=='eLORETA'.

New in version 0.17.

use_cpsbool

Whether to use cortical patch statistics to define normal orientations for surfaces (default True).

Only used when the inverse is free orientation (loose=1.), not in surface orientation, and pick_ori='normal'.

New in version 0.20.

verbosebool | str | int | None

Control verbosity of the logging output. If None, use the default verbosity level. See the logging documentation and mne.verbose() for details. Should only be passed as a keyword argument.

Returns
stcSourceEstimate | VectorSourceEstimate | VolSourceEstimate

The source estimates.

residualinstance of Evoked

The residual evoked data, only returned if return_residual is True.

See also

apply_inverse_raw

Apply inverse operator to raw object.

apply_inverse_epochs

Apply inverse operator to epochs object.

Notes

Currently only the method='eLORETA' has additional options. It performs an iterative fit with a convergence criterion, so you can pass a method_params dict with string keys mapping to values for:

‘eps’float

The convergence epsilon (default 1e-6).

‘max_iter’int

The maximum number of iterations (default 20). If less regularization is applied, more iterations may be necessary.

‘force_equal’bool

Force all eLORETA weights for each direction for a given location equal. The default is None, which means True for loose-orientation inverses and False for free- and fixed-orientation inverses. See below.

The eLORETA paper 4 defines how to compute inverses for fixed- and free-orientation inverses. In the free orientation case, the X/Y/Z orientation triplet for each location is effectively multiplied by a 3x3 weight matrix. This is the behavior obtained with force_equal=False parameter.

However, other noise normalization methods (dSPM, sLORETA) multiply all orientations for a given location by a single value. Using force_equal=True mimics this behavior by modifying the iterative algorithm to choose uniform weights (equivalent to a 3x3 diagonal matrix with equal entries).

It is necessary to use force_equal=True with loose orientation inverses (e.g., loose=0.2), otherwise the solution resembles a free-orientation inverse (loose=1.0). It is thus recommended to use force_equal=True for loose orientation and force_equal=False for free orientation inverses. This is the behavior used when the parameter force_equal=None (default behavior).
