source localization neuromag 122 system.

I assume that t(1:3,4) is the center of the figure of 8 coil (the
crossing point). Adding or subtracting 0.008 along the correct
dimension seems to be necessary to arrive at the center of each of the
two loops that make up the planar gradiometer.

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.
