Surface fits inside a sphere with radius  120.0 mm
Surface extent:

    y = -120.0 ...  120.0 mm
    z = -120.0 ...  120.0 mm
Grid extent:

    z = -125.0 ...  125.0 mm
132651 sources before omitting any.
57777 sources after omitting infeasible sources.
Source spaces are in MRI coordinates.
Checking that the sources are inside the bounding surface and at least    5.0 mm away (will take a few...)
334 source space points omitted because they are outside the inner skull surface.
1242 source space points omitted because of the    5.0-mm distance limit.
Thank you for waiting.
56201 sources remaining after excluding the sources outside the surface and less than    5.0 mm inside.
