This documentation is for the development version (0.15.dev0) - switch to Stable

Community-driven software for processing time-resolved neural signals including electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG), offering comprehensive data analysis tools for Windows, OSX, and Linux:

  • Preprocessing and denoising
  • Source estimation
  • Time–frequency analysis
  • Statistical testing
  • Functional connectivity
  • Machine learning
  • Visualization of sensor- and source-space data
  • And much more

From raw data to source estimates in about 20 lines of code (try it in an experimental online demo!):

>>> import mne  
>>> raw ='raw.fif')  # load data  
>>>['bads'] = ['MEG 2443', 'EEG 053']  # mark bad channels  
>>> raw.filter(l_freq=None, h_freq=40.0)  # low-pass filter  
>>> events = mne.find_events(raw, 'STI014')  # extract events and epoch data 
>>> epochs = mne.Epochs(raw, events, event_id=1, tmin=-0.2, tmax=0.5,  
>>>                     reject=dict(grad=4000e-13, mag=4e-12, eog=150e-6))  
>>> evoked = epochs.average()  # compute evoked  
>>> evoked.plot()  # butterfly plot the evoked data 
>>> cov = mne.compute_covariance(epochs, tmax=0, method='shrunk')  
>>> fwd = mne.read_forward_solution(fwd_fname, surf_ori=True)  
>>> inv = mne.minimum_norm.make_inverse_operator(  
>>>, fwd, cov, loose=0.2)  # compute inverse operator 
>>> stc = mne.minimum_norm.apply_inverse(  
>>>     evoked, inv, lambda2=1. / 9., method='dSPM')  # apply it 
>>> stc_fs = stc.morph('fsaverage')  # morph to fsaverage 
>>> stc_fs.plot()  # plot source data on fsaverage's brain
