Dear Jason,

that is very interesting:
(1) CSF:
I would expect that in hydrocephalus you have a significant contribution of CSF, see
Effects of shunts have been investigated in this paper

You might then be interested to model your shunts and the possibly bigger CSF compartment by using e.g. the Fieldtrip-SimBio pipeline (corresponding paper has just been accepted):

> This is not a specific Frieldtrip question, but I am hoping you can answer it anyways. I am trying to design an eeg experiment with hydrocephalus patients. However, most will have multiple shunts. I realise this will likely have dramatic effects to the activation patterns.  A quick Google search gave me some rather old papers. I am wondering what is the best way to compare their activity to controls?  Also, I will have access to their MRIs. Can I use beamforming?  Unfortunately, I don't have access to an MEG.
