Display Resting-State Correlations
==================================

In this example, we show how to build up a complex visualization of a
volume-based image showing resting-state correlations across the whole brain
from a seed in the angular gyrus. We'll plot several views of both hemispheres
in a single window and manipulate the colormap to best represent the nature of
the data.

We want to use an appropriate color map for these data: a divergent map that
is centered on 0, which is a meaningful transition-point as it marks the change
from negative correlations to positive correlations. By providing the 'center'
argument the add_data function automatically chooses a divergent colormap.

"""
You can tune the data display by shifting the colormap around interesting
regions. For example, you can ignore small correlation up to a magnitude of 0.2
and let colors become gradually less transparent from 0.2 to 0.5 by re-scaling
the colormap as follows. For more information see the help string of this
function.

You can also set the overall opacity of the displayed data while maintaining
the transparency of the small values.
