Project Description: There are lots of nice tools to plot brain meshes in python, but many come with dependencies that can be tricky to install. This project aims to improve a basic tool to plot brain meshes purely using matplotlib.
Ideal for people who want a simple, easy to use tool to visual cortical surface data on meshes in notebooks or generate brain images through python scripts.
All you need is a mesh file (containing vertices and faces) and a set of values you want to display. For example, cortical thickness values across the mesh or a surface-based parcellation.
Here is the github: https://github.com/kwagstyl/matplotlib_surface_plotting
Data to use: All data is currently included in the github repo. You can use your own mesh files if you prefer.
