[FieldTrip] 4D-Neuroimaging Magnes 2500WH system

Dear All,

We recently started a joint study with the staff of a hospital specialized for brain diseases, where there is a 4D-Neuroimaging Magnes 2500WH system. We have collected a sample MEG data with the system to see if we can perform experiments with the system. I am trying to analyze the data with FieldTrip. As introduced in the tutorial (http://www.fieldtriptoolbox.org/getting_started/bti), the software currently reads digital balancing weights only for the Magnes 3600 system but not the 148-channel system. And yes, the software does not compute the balancing matrix for our MEG data, as indicated by the function, ft_read_header, "not applying digital weights in the gradiometer balancing matrix", when reading our MEG data.

I have three questions about analyzing these Magnes 2500WH MEG data with FieldTrip.

1) Can we still carry out the analyses (ERF, TRF and connectivity) correctly at the sensory-level? 
2) Is there a plan that FieldTrip would read the digital balancing weights for the MEG data of the Magnes 2500WH system?
3) If we want to program to read the weights, what information do we need and possibly where can find the related information (e.g., the user manual of the system?)?

Thanks in advance.

Best wishes,
Ling Wang
