[FieldTrip] leadfields MNI-coordinates

Hi Eelke,

Thanks a lot, I seem to have missed that thread, very informative!
However, I seem not able yet to do the inverse warping, from MNI-coordinates 
to CTF-coordinates.

- First I do

- This gives me the transformation/normalization parameters from ctf->mni
- As an example, I apply them to a random coordinate, here [3 5 6]:
5 6]),'individual2sn')

- This gives me mni-coordinates -6.0652  -21.7174  -57.2273
- But how can I do the reverse?
- If I do
  I don't get [3 5 6]

- It seems to me I should do something like
  or so, but I am not getting it right...

Hi Stan,

Have a look at this recent thread on the list (4 messages, Tom and me, this 
is the starting message):
I think that might help you.
