[FieldTrip] ft_prepare_vol_sens-missing .mat file

Thu Jun 14 05:53:14 CEST 2012

Dear fieldtrip users,

I am using a BEM (using OPENMEEG) created volume conduction model, and in order to  prepare lead fields I loaded the electrode array with,
elec = ft_read_sens('mydirectory\standard_1020.elc');

The I used the function,

[vol, sens] = ft_prepare_vol_sens(vol, elec);
However this give as error,

??? Reference to non-existent field 'mat'.

Error in ==> ft_prepare_vol_sens at 419
        if size(vol.mat,1)~=size(vol.mat,2) && size(vol.mat,1)==length(sens.elecpos)

Error in ==> curry_leadField at 15
  [vol, sens] = ft_prepare_vol_sens(vol, elec);

The vol created with the OPENMEEG only contains the following fields,
vol =

             bnd: [1x3 struct]
            cond: [0.3300 0.0042 0.3300]
    skin_surface: 1
          source: 3
            type: 'openmeeg'
            unit: 'mm'
            cfg: [1x1 struct]

Can someone please help me with this error, any advice and comment will be highly appreciated.
Thank you very much!
