[Simnibs-discuss] TI Simulation Visualization with SimNIBS

Hi Connor,

the TI.m saves the mesh with the TI field as 'ernie_TIenvelope.msh', 
which you can open in gmsh (see 
on an introduction on how to use it).

To get some more information on focality and peak field strength in gray 
matter, you can add to the end of TI.m:


To get a visualization of the regions in which the TI amplitude exceeds 
a certain threshold, you can add:

*% show regions exceeding 95 percentile**
**threshold = 0.143; % 95 percentile of the TI field in GM, as printed 
by mesh_get_fieldpeaks_and_focality**
**tet_idx = mout.element_data{3}.tetdata>=threshold;**
'elemtype','tet','region_idx',2,'tet_idx', tet_idx);**
**TR = 
**mesh_show_surface(mout,'showSurface',true,'facealpha',0.4); % show the 
whole cortex semi-transparent**
**mesh_show_surface(m_vis,'showSurface',true,'surfaceColor',[1 0 
0],'haxis',gca); % add peak TI region in red *

I hope, these hints help a bit.

Best regards,
