Hi Barbara,

Your code actually looks fine to me. Some things that I could think of:

1.       Did you specify cfg.coordinates=’mni’ before applying ft_volumenormalise?

2.       Did you select the right volumes for plotting? So

a.         For CTF head space:
    % make a figure of the single subject headmodel

b.      And for MNI-space:

This should lead to the same anatomical locations.

Hope this helps!

Hi there,
I found this very nice thread on warping between spm and ctf space (thanks Jan-Mathijs and Stan) and at first sight it seems to work fine (numbers match after applying warping back and forth) but when I try to navigate to the spot in the plotted figure the point of interest seems not to be the same.

% Inverse warping
mnipos=[-48 -75 8]; % [46 -78 6]; MT
ctfpos= ft_warp_apply(pinv(mri_realign_mni.initial),posback)

 -8.6110   55.6190   50.0473

I plotted either  (see .jpg)

A.    the source (source = ft_sourceanalysis(cfg, freq));
B.    the interpolated source (sourceInt  = ft_sourceinterpolate(cfg, source , mri_realign);
C.    the normalized source (sourceIntNorm = ft_volumenormalise(cfg, sourceInt);

and manually navigated to the respective coordinates. While for the normalized source the location makes sense (area MT) the location for A and B seems different.

Is there any obvious mistake I’m overlooking?

Thanks a lot!
