[Eeglablist] sLORETA question

Dear eLORETA explorers,

Sorry for the slow progress.
I uploaded the sample output from the wrapped-up eLORETA plugin to this
page.
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.youtube.com_watch-3Fv-3DTL77GbC2wE8&d=DwIFaQ&c=-35OiAkTchMrZOngvJPOeA&r=kB5f6DjXkuOQpM1bq5OFA9kKiQyNm1p6x6e36h3EglE&m=JPMLUdaFccPYzcUbq68auJkGHzq4G3uzL0wsJWR_pZsmcSXDpEaTGJ3JE2k9UW4g&s=vuPGRPEJ5SwZVXzFrneIvb3BYfjC1RM43vOMPoGHXlE&e= 
Basically, I am thinking about making a toolbox that can create something
like this as a default output--but I want to know if that is something you
want to see/show.
Please let me know what you think.

If I were to make a GUI for this function, what are the parameters you want
to specify?
Do you always want to make it into a movie, or is a 2-D image with a
selected time slice sufficient?
I stored all the voxel (?) values for every time frame but it was only a
few MB. I can probably store all the output so that next time you can skip
calculation. It makes easier to cut and try to optimize color scale limit
and brain angle etc.
Do any of you know a convenient way to find anatomical label/info from
128x128x128 (mm) voxels? (I am not even sure what atlas it uses now--is it
MNI? I'm using the Fieldtrip function to generate this eLORETA image.)

Please help me develop it by posting your opinions. Is the brain image too
small? Is the ERP plot helpful? etc etc.

Makoto
