Plot Example Retinotopy Flatmaps¶
This demo shows how to plot example retinotopy data onto a subject’s brain on a flatmap. In order for this demo to work, you need to download this dataset, but that can also be done automatically through the urllib command that is included.
S1 is the example subject that comes with pycortex, but if you want to plot data onto a different subject, you will need to have them in your filestore, and you will also need a flatmap for them.
