Custom Color Map
Hello,

I have been using BrainNet for some time now, and am comfortable with the GUI, but I am not very proficient at coding. I had a question about customizing the color map.

I am interested in displaying node data that ranges from negative to positive values (e.g., -11 to +4), with a gradient to the color map so that nodes with more extreme values are either more saturated or have a different hue (e.g., warmer vs. cooler). I also need to threshold my data so that nodes with mid-range values (e.g., -3 to +3) do not appear on the brain map. Ideally, the colors corresponding to those mid-range values would appear as white or colorless on the color map, similar to the colormap shown on the right side of this image: https://hughpumphrey.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/bwr.png

However, there is nothing similar in the preset options when selecting nodal color. Currently, I am using a Jet scale and have removed data points with mid-range values from the input file. Please see attached file for an example output image. Note that this image does not contain any nodes with mid-range values, which would correspond to colors from yellow to redish-orange on the color map. However, this creates a problem when interpreting multiple images with different scales as the colors corresponding to mid-range values changes in the color map from image to image.

Are there any available patches or custom-made maps that would be suitable for my purposes?
Please let me know,
Thank you in advance
