Hi Ana,

inside and outside just describe whether the grid point is inside or 
outside the brain. You can plot this to see for yourself:
% plot only what is inside the brain
ft_plot_vol(vol, 'edgecolor', 'none'); alpha 0.4;

% plot the whole grid
ft_plot_vol(vol, 'edgecolor', 'none'); alpha 0.4;

FieldTrip will use that information automatically to only use grid 
points inside the brain, so yes, you can use the whole grid to compute 
the leadfield matrix. If you do not want that, you can modify 
grid.inside and grid.outside yourself.

Have fun fieldtrippin' :)
