mne.write_forward_solution

mne.write_forward_solution(fname, fwd, overwrite=False, verbose=None)[source]

Write forward solution to a file.

Parameters
fnamestr

File name to save the forward solution to. It should end with -fwd.fif or -fwd.fif.gz.

fwdForward

Forward solution.

overwritebool

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

verbosebool | str | int | 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.

Notes

Forward solutions, which are derived from an original forward solution with free orientation, are always stored on disk as forward solution with free orientation in X/Y/Z RAS coordinates. Transformations (surface orientation, fixed orientation) will be reverted. To reapply any transformation to the forward operator please apply convert_forward_solution() after reading the forward solution with read_forward_solution().

Forward solutions, which are derived from an original forward solution with fixed orientation, are stored on disk as forward solution with fixed surface-based orientations. Please note that the transformation to surface-based, fixed orientation cannot be reverted after loading the forward solution with read_forward_solution().
