mne.datasets.epilepsy_ecog.data_path(path=None, force_update=False, update_path=True, download=True, *, verbose=None)[source]#

Get path to local copy of epilepsy_ecog dataset.

pathNone | str

Location of where to look for the epilepsy_ecog dataset. If None, the environment variable or config parameter MNE_DATASETS_EPILEPSY_ECOG_PATH is used. If it doesn’t exist, the “~/mne_data” directory is used. If the epilepsy_ecog dataset is not found under the given path, the data will be automatically downloaded to the specified folder.


Force update of the epilepsy_ecog dataset even if a local copy exists. Default is False.

update_pathbool | None

If True (default), set the MNE_DATASETS_EPILEPSY_ECOG_PATH in mne-python config to the given path. If None, the user is prompted.


If False and the epilepsy_ecog dataset has not been downloaded yet, it will not be downloaded and the path will be returned as ‘’ (empty string). This is mostly used for debugging purposes and can be safely ignored by most users.

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.
