at this moment it uses "load", i.e. it assumes that the surface and inflated surface are in a mat file. Better would be to use ft_read_headshape, and thereby support also freesurfer, gifti and other cortical sheet file formats (and of course *.mat as well). around line 935 there is now if ~isempty(cfg.surfinflated) % read the inflated triangulated cortical surface from file tmp = load(cfg.surfinflated, 'bnd'); surf = tmp.bnd; if isfield(surf, 'transform'), % compute the surface vertices in head coordinates surf.pnt = warp_apply(surf.transform, surf.pnt); end end end this needs to be updated. There will be a similar piece for, i.e. the non-inflated surface.

note that in the cfg to ft_sourceplot you now can also put in a surface description directly, not only the string that refers to the surface file.

@irina, please do a "svn update" before attempting a "svn commit"
