 +Note that this reference documentation is identical to the help that is displayed in MATLAB when you type "help ft_read_sens"​.
 +  <a href=/​reference/​ft_read_sens><​font color=green>​FT_READ_SENS</​font></​a>​ read sensor positions from various manufacturer specific files. See
 +  further down for the list of file types that are supported.
 +  Use as
 +    grad = ft_read_sens(filename,​ ...)  % for gradiometers
 +    elec = ft_read_sens(filename,​ ...)  % for electrodes
 +  Additional options should be specified in key-value pairs and can be
 +    '​fileformat' ​    = string, see the list of supported file formats (the default is determined automatically)
 +    '​senstype' ​      = string, can be '​eeg'​ or '​meg',​ specifies which type of sensors to read from the file (default = '​eeg'​)
 +    '​coordsys' ​      = string, '​head'​ or '​dewar'​ (default = '​head'​)
 +    '​coilaccuracy' ​  = can be empty or a number (0, 1 or 2) to specify the accuracy (default = [])
 +  An electrode definition contain the following fields
 +    elec.elecpos = Nx3 matrix with carthesian (x,y,z) coordinates of each
 +                   ​electrode
 +    elec.label ​  = cell-array of length N with the label of each electrode
 +    elec.chanpos = Nx3 matrix with coordinates of each sensor
 +  A gradiometer definition generally consists of multiple coils per channel, e.g. two
 +  coils for a 1st order gradiometer in which the orientation of the coils is
 +  opposite. Each coil is described separately and a large "​tra"​ matrix has to be
 +  given that defines how the forward computed field is combined over the coils to
 +  generate the output of each channel. The gradiometer definition constsis of the
 +  following fields
 +    grad.coilpos = Mx3 matrix with the position of each coil
 +    grad.coilori = Mx3 matrix with the orientation of each coil
 +    grad.tra ​    = NxM matrix with the weight of each coil into each channel
 +    grad.label ​  = cell-array of length N with the label of each of the channels
 +    grad.chanpos = Nx3 matrix with the positions of each sensor
 +  Files from the following acquisition systems and analysis platforms file formats
 +  are supported.
