Maxwell filter data with movement compensationΒΆ

Demonstrate movement compensation on simulated data. The simulated data contains bilateral activation of auditory cortices, repeated over 14 different head rotations (head center held fixed). See the following for details:

# 1. Take a naive average (smears activity)
evoked = mne.Epochs(raw, events, 1, -0.2, 0.8).average()

# 2. Use raw movement compensation (restores pattern)
