1) There is no requirement to provide the grid in head coordinates.
vol, grid and sensors can be in any coordinate system as long as it is
the same system.
2) What do you use to read sensor positions and fiducials for
Yokogawa? The code available in Fieldtrip at the moment is incomplete
and would not allow you to use the beamformer. If you have something
better, we'd be very interested in integrating your code.
3) There are some functions in Fieldtrip to do coregistration. Look at
electroderealign and interactiverealign.
4) SPM8b (http://www.fil.ion.ucl.ac.uk/spm/software/spm8b/) which is
very well integrated with Fieldtrip has some facilities for
coregistering sensors and head models using GUI. The resulting
coregistered volume in sensors can be used for beamforming in
Fieldtrip. But this wil only work with proper Yokogawa support which
we lack at the moment.
