[Eeglablist] Wrong channel location with MNI brain model

Hi Steve

Thanks for your reply!

Actually, I solved this problem in a sort of awkward way that I did use MNI template to add channel locations for a second time afterwards. It did work for me. :) 

Anyway, I will try your strategy in that it seems cool and solves the problem based on what channel location file is all about.

Hi Xiang,

I'm not sure what exactly is causing this issue as I haven't used the MNI template. However, I also use a cap where FCz is the online reference and I need to put it back into the data, and I usually hard-code its location rather than reading it from the template. As you can see from the figure, the location of FCz should be halfway between FC1 and FC2 on the x-axis (this should be 0), and should be halfway in between Fz and Cz on the y-axis (so the mean of the y-values for those two channels). Usually I just use those values to set the location of FCz, and then it comes out in the right location. I don't know if this is sufficient for things like source analysis, but for the analyses I typically do where I do not care about source localization then it has worked fine in the past.

Dear list
I found a problem         when I loaded channel locations with MNI model, but this problem         was absent with the BESA model. The problem is when I use MNI           model to load channel location and get FCz           back in data which is the online reference electrode,         and I also optimize center location as         Makoto's pipeline suggests. But the result is that the           position of FCz is totally wrongly located which you         can see in the image.

does anybody         encounter this same problem before? and could you please give me         some suggestions?
