# mne.sensitivity_map¶

mne.sensitivity_map(fwd, projs=None, ch_type='grad', mode='fixed', exclude=[], verbose=None)[source]

Compute sensitivity map.

Such maps are used to know how much sources are visible by a type of sensor, and how much projections shadow some sources.

Parameters
fwdForward

The forward operator.

projslist

List of projection vectors.

The type of sensors to use.

modestr

The type of sensitivity map computed. See manual. Should be ‘free’, ‘fixed’, ‘ratio’, ‘radiality’, ‘angle’, ‘remaining’, or ‘dampening’ corresponding to the argument –map 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the command mne_sensitivity_map.

exclude

List of channels to exclude. If empty do not exclude any (default). If ‘bads’, exclude channels in fwd[‘info’][‘bads’].

verbose

If not None, override default verbose level (see mne.verbose() and Logging documentation for more).

Returns
stc

The sensitivity map as a SourceEstimate or VolSourceEstimate instance for visualization.
