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.

show_namesbool | list

Whether to display all channel names. If a list, only the channel names in the list are shown. Defaults to True.


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 | 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.

figinstance of matplotlib.figure.Figure
