mne.write_forward_solution

mne.write_forward_solution(fname, fwd, overwrite=False, verbose=None)[source]

Write forward solution to a file.

Parameters:
fname : str

File name to save the forward solution to. It should end with -fwd.fif or -fwd.fif.gz.

fwd : Forward

Forward solution.

overwrite : bool

If True, overwrite destination file (if it exists).

verbose : bool, str, int, or None

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

Notes

Forward solutions, which are derived from an original forward solution with free orientation, are always stored on disk as forward solution with free orientation in X/Y/Z RAS coordinates. Transformations (surface orientation, fixed orientation) will be reverted. To reapply any transformation to the forward operator please apply convert_forward_solution() after reading the forward solution with read_forward_solution().

Forward solutions, which are derived from an original forward solution with fixed orientation, are stored on disk as forward solution with fixed surface-based orientations. Please note that the transformation to surface-based, fixed orientation cannot be reverted after loading the forward solution with read_forward_solution().
