[Eeglablist] help: source reconstruction with time course

Hello i think what you obtain is the best fitting dipoles for every
component in the entire time interval; that is, only one solution for the
entire interval. Even though you have the same number of components and
electrodes, you probably want to fit only those that explain more than 90%
of the variance in the data. If  I am not wrong, dipole models solutions
always give you a limited number of sources (max = number of electrodes). If
you want to obtain more sources you may consider a distributed model for the
inverse solution. For a discussion about different solutions, see Michel et
al. (2004). EEG source imaging. Clinical Neurophisiology, 115.

I believe that the spherical settings can be modified in 'Head model and
settings', selecting the 'custom model files' option as a model.

hope this helps,
