mne.setup_source_space#

mne.setup_source_space(subject, spacing='oct6', surface='white', subjects_dir=None, add_dist=True, n_jobs=None, *, verbose=None)[source]#

Set up bilateral hemisphere surface-based source space with subsampling.

Parameters
subjectstr

The FreeSurfer subject name.

spacingstr

The spacing to use. Can be 'ico#' for a recursively subdivided icosahedron, 'oct#' for a recursively subdivided octahedron, 'all' for all points, or an integer to use approximate distance-based spacing (in mm).

Changed in version 0.18: Support for integers for distance-based spacing.

surfacestr

The surface to use.

subjects_dirpath-like | None

The path to the directory containing the FreeSurfer subjects reconstructions. If None, defaults to the SUBJECTS_DIR environment variable.

add_distbool | str

Add distance and patch information to the source space. This takes some time so precomputing it is recommended. Can also be ‘patch’ to only compute patch information (requires SciPy 1.3+).

Changed in version 0.20: Support for add_dist=’patch’.

n_jobsint | None

The number of jobs to run in parallel. If -1, it is set to the number of CPU cores. Requires the joblib package. None (default) is a marker for ‘unset’ that will be interpreted as n_jobs=1 (sequential execution) unless the call is performed under a joblib.parallel_backend() context manager that sets another value for n_jobs. Ignored if add_dist=='patch'.

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
srcSourceSpaces

The source space for each hemisphere.
