Hi Nicholas,

It seems that the fif files lacks some information that FieldTrip assumes to be present. I would say that this can only be caused by the fact that the version of mne_make_source_space you used does not write the triangle area information into the fif file. Could you go to bugzilla.fcdonders.nl, create yourself an account, and file the issue as a bug? Please then also upload the fif-file you mentioned. I'll have a look at it and make the ft_read_headshape function more robust. In the mean time you could comment out line 421.

I am using an Anatomical MRI scan for the head model analysis, the skull is present and I manually am Identifying the fiducials.    Also, a few steps earlier it had me check the white matter segmentation done by Freesurfer and that worked fine and what I get closely resembles the tutorial.  So I think the problem is somewhere in the MNE I am just not sure where.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you for your time.
