Quickly and easily create 2d and 3d plots of fMRI data.
function = plot_brain3d(x,meta,erode_layers)
%PLOT_BRAIN3D Plot a 3d brain image
% Each voxel is plotted as a colored cube, such that the entire image forms
% a 3d brain.
% Usage: plot_brain3d(x,meta,erode_layers)
% x: a 1 by nvoxels vector of voxel activations
% meta: a struct with the following fields:
% nvoxels: total number of voxels containing brain
% coordToCol: dimx by dimy by dimz matrix of voxel numbers (zeros
% indicate no voxel at the corresponding location)
% colToCoord: nvoxels by 3 matrix of voxel locations
% **TIP: meta can also be an nvoxels by 3 matrix of voxel locations**
% erode_layers: optional argument specifying how many layers to make much
% more transparent. this allows patterns beneath the surface
% of the brain to be more-easily seen.
% OUTPUTS: [none]
