The differences between source reconstruction methods, or inverse
methods, are in the assumptions that they make on the sources. Some
make assumptions on the number of sources (dipole fitting),
distribution of activity (minimum norm linear estimation) and some
make assumptions on the correlatedness of the timecourses of the
sources (beamforming or music). A difference is also in wether and how
the noise in the data is incorporated in the estimate of the source
acitivity (ignored in plain old dipole fitting, explicitely suppressed
The method that works the best is the method whose assumptions on the
data (true sources and noise) best corresponds to the data that you

The aim of this list is to facilitate the discussion between users of the FieldTrip toolbox, to share experiences and to discuss new ideas for MEG and EEG analysis. See also http://listserv.surfnet.nl/archives/fieldtrip.html and http://www.ru.nl/neuroimaging/fieldtrip.
