mne.read_selection(name, fname=None, info=None, verbose=None)[source]

By default, the selections used in mne_browse_raw are supported. Additional selections can be added by specifying a selection file (e.g. produced using mne_browse_raw) using the fname parameter.

The name parameter can be a string or a list of string. The returned selection will be the combination of all selections in the file where (at least) one element in name is a substring of the selection name in the file. For example, name=['temporal', 'Right-frontal'] will produce a combination of 'Left-temporal', 'Right-temporal', and 'Right-frontal'.

The included selections are:

• 'Vertex'

• 'Left-temporal'

• 'Right-temporal'

• 'Left-parietal'

• 'Right-parietal'

• 'Left-occipital'

• 'Right-occipital'

• 'Left-frontal'

• 'Right-frontal'
