I would recommend using vitamin E capsules and the 'type' option. You
should not normalize your individual structurals, just coregister them
to the template, write down the coordinates of the capsules in those
coregistered images and then use the same images with the 'type'
option to build and coregister the head model. Regarding headshape I
would say that precisely measured 3 points are sufficient for
coregistration whereas headshape usually has some 'wiggle room' and
can only spoil things if you have such a precise measurement of the

Would you recommend the 'select' option and use SPM's hardcoded locations or use more precise information by including e.g. vitamin E capsules in the structural image and use the 'type' option to select the MNI coordinates in the normalized MRIs.
