[FieldTrip] beamformer

Hi Ye Mei,

Source-reconstructed activity (using the beamformer method) typically has a
depth-bias (see van Veen et al., IEEE '97). Taking the relative
increase/decrease of activity from baseline (effectively implementing a
normalization per grid point location) is less prone to this bias as
compared to taking the absolute difference. Hope this answers your question,
