I would like for python scripts and objects to be able to trigger a MATLAB callback. Is there any way to do this such as assigning a listener to a python object property or having python raise a MATLAB event or call a MATLAB function?
I've considered using socket communication between python and MATLAB to (essentially) use the java event triggered BytesAvailable function, but that is rather roundabout and requires several different functions and a fair bit of coding.

Just to clarify, this would be communication between python objects instantiated in MATLAB through direct python calls (py.Module.Class(), etc.).

You can use MATLAB Engine API for Python. The following documentation has an example that shows how to call a function in MATLAB from Python: https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/matlab_external/call-matlab-functions-from-python.html
