Hi Cornelius,

There is no need to 'uninterpolate' because the coordinates are already expressed in the correct coordinate system. What you probably want is to find the index to the voxel in the original source-structure closest to your 'hotspot' in the interpolated image.
This can be achieved by something like this:

write down the coordinates of your favourite position in the interpolated image (in world coordinates, here I assume that you are still in MEG coordinate system and have not normalized to MNI space), call this pos

pos = pos./10 (from mm to cm)

dpos = source.pos - repmat(pos, size(source.pos,1),1);
[m,ind] = min(sum(dpos.^2,2));

source is the original source structure.
ind is the index you are looking for.

If you have interpolate to the MNI-template grid you need to replace the source.pos with the set of grid positions from your template grid (i.e. expressed in MNI coordinates).
