This program assumes that FreeSurfer and MNE are installed and sourced properly.

This function extracts the BEM surfaces (outer skull, inner skull, and outer skin) from multiecho FLASH MRI data with spin angles of 5 and 30 degrees, in mgz format.

This function assumes that the flash images are available in the folder mri/bem/flash within the freesurfer subject reconstruction.
