This is a Python package for visualization and interaction with cortical
surface representations of neuroimaging data from Freesurfer. It
extends Mayavi’s powerful visualization engine with a high-level interface for
working with MRI and MEG data.
PySurfer offers both a command-line interface designed to broadly replicate
Freesurfer’s Tksurfer program as well as a Python library for writing scripts
to efficiently explore complex datasets.
