mne.viz.plot_evoked_joint(evoked, times='peaks', title='', picks=None, exclude=None, show=True, ts_args=None, topomap_args=None)[source]

Plot evoked data as butterfly plot and add topomaps for time points.


Axes to plot in can be passed by the user through ts_args or topomap_args. In that case both ts_args and topomap_args axes have to be used. Be aware that when the axes are provided, their position may be slightly modified.

evokedinstance of Evoked

The evoked instance.

timesfloat | array of float | “auto” | “peaks”

The time point(s) to plot. If "auto", 5 evenly spaced topographies between the first and last time instant will be shown. If "peaks", finds time points automatically by checking for 3 local maxima in Global Field Power. Defaults to "peaks".

titlestr | None

The title. If None, suppress printing channel type title. If an empty string, a default title is created. Defaults to ‘’. If custom axes are passed make sure to set title=None, otherwise some of your axes may be removed during placement of the title axis.

picksstr | list | slice | None

Channels to include. Slices and lists of integers will be interpreted as channel indices. In lists, channel type strings (e.g., ['meg', 'eeg']) will pick channels of those types, channel name strings (e.g., ['MEG0111', 'MEG2623'] will pick the given channels. Can also be the string values “all” to pick all channels, or “data” to pick data channels. None (default) will pick all channels. Note that channels in info['bads'] will be included if their names or indices are explicitly provided.

excludeNone | list of str | ‘bads’

Channels names to exclude from being shown. If 'bads', the bad channels are excluded. Defaults to None.


Show figure if True. Defaults to True.

ts_argsNone | dict

A dict of kwargs that are forwarded to mne.Evoked.plot() to style the butterfly plot. If they are not in this dict, the following defaults are passed: spatial_colors=True, zorder='std'. show and exclude are illegal. If None, no customizable arguments will be passed. Defaults to None.

topomap_argsNone | dict

A dict of kwargs that are forwarded to mne.Evoked.plot_topomap() to style the topomaps. If it is not in this dict, outlines='skirt' will be passed. show, times, colorbar are illegal. If None, no customizable arguments will be passed. Defaults to None.

figinstance of matplotlib.figure.Figure | list

The figure object containing the plot. If evoked has multiple channel types, a list of figures, one for each channel type, is returned.
