Scripting in mricroGL importing image error

I'm trying to make a script in mricroGL, based off of the inbuilt mosaic2 template. I am getting the following error message: 

SyntaxError: EOL while scanning string literal
Python Engine Failed

Below is the code. The issue seems to be with retrieving the overlays. 

import gl
gl.backcolor(255, 255, 255)
#open background image
#open overlay 1: NTT SDM FWE 05 corr
gl.overlayload('/Users/a----------/Desktop/quick access/MyTNTest_z_tfceCorrected_p_0.00500_1_p.nii.gz)
gl.minmax(1, 4, 4)
#open overlay 2: EXT learning uncorr 005SDM
gl.overlayload('/Users/a----------/Desktop/quick access/MyTest1_z_uncorrected_p_0.00500_1.nii.gz')
gl.minmax(2, -4, -4)
gl.colorname (2,"3blue")
#"a"xial, "c"oronal and "s"agittal "r"enderings
gl.mosaic("A R 0 C R 0 S R 0; A R -0 C R -0 S R -0");

The line
  gl.overlayload('/Users/a----------/Desktop/quick access/MyTNTest_z_tfceCorrected_p_0.00500_1_p.nii.gz)
should read
 gl.overlayload('/Users/a----------/Desktop/quick access/MyTNTest_z_tfceCorrected_p_0.00500_1_p.nii.gz')

Explanation: in Python you begin and end a string with a quote or double quote, e.g. 

By the way, the Python interpreter should tell you the line for the error, and the line/column of the current cursor location is shown at the top of the scripting window. In the screenshot included the error is on line four, and the cursor is on column 21 of line 4. This can help you troubleshoot errors.
