Title: BioPSE: dipole inputs & FEM boundary conditions


As are most new users of SCIrun I am am very imrpessed with the documentation that is available for the various modules and packages. However, I have some very basic questions which may/may not have involved solutions. Currently I am modeling the induced E-field of externally applied magnetic fields (in brain tissues). My three questions are:

Can SCIrun/BioPSE simulate the induced E-field when given a set of electric dipoles (i.e. from vector potentials mapping current in a coil)?

Does the dipole (widget) in Chapter 3 of the BioPSE tutorial have to be a magnetic dipole?

Finally, for BioPSE's FEM modules, are there any specific applications with Neumann boundary conditions? I remember seeing somewhere that the Dirichlet B.C.'s are used but Neumann B.C.'s are assumed at the first interface.

Any help regarding these matters will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
