        External Email - Use Caution        

Hi Eric,

Thank you so much for your time and insight! I have been wondering about these things for some time. I’m sorry about the non-issue GitHub issue, but I’m glad that something productive is coming from it. I really appreciate your direction here and on GitHub. I’ll definitely look into trying all this tomorrow.

You can load the surfaces with `rr_lh = mne.read_surface('subjects_dir/subject/surf/lh.white')[0]`, then your locations are `rr_lh[stc.vertices[0]]`. For the right hemisphere, load `rh.white` and use `rr_rh[stc.vertices[1]]`.
