Dear Milan,

If you have not recorded the electrode positions yourself using, for example, a Polhemus or Localite system you will always end-up with a suboptimal alignment (fiducials, or not).

That being said, you can skip the step of automatic realignment in the tutorial and immediately use ft_electroderealign with cfg.method = 'interactive', to manually rotate, translate, and scale the electrode positions to make it fit as well as possible to your headmodel.

I'm having difficulties with aligning easycap M10 electrodes with a head model. I'm following this tutorial: http://fieldtrip.fcdonders.nl/tutorial/headmodel_eeg#align_the_electrodes

The problem as I see it is that the file FieldTrip/template/electrode/easycap-M10.txt that I'm using istead of standard_1020.elc doesn't include fiducials and can therefore not be properly aligned with the head model automatically.

How can I properly align M10 electrodes defined in spherical coordinates or convert MNI cartesian coordinates to the head model coordinates which appear to use CTF, please?

Yours faithfully
