, preload=False, verbose=None) RawPersyst[source]#

Reader for a Persyst (.lay/.dat) recording.


Path to the Persyst header .lay file.

preloadbool or str (default False)

Preload data into memory for data manipulation and faster indexing. If True, the data will be preloaded into memory (fast, requires large amount of memory). If preload is a string, preload is the file name of a memory-mapped file which is used to store the data on the hard drive (slower, requires less memory).

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.

It is assumed that the .lay and .dat file are in the same directory. To get the correct file path to the .dat file, read_raw_persyst will get the corresponding dat filename from the lay file, and look for that file inside the same directory as the lay file.
