We describe a numerical method to solve the quasistatic Maxwell equations to obtain the electric potential distribution generated by a point source of current density inside a body of arbitrary shape and constant conductivity. The method needs only a set of nodes on the surface and inside the body, but it does not need a mesh connecting the nodes. The proposed meshless method is compared against the boundary elements method evaluating its performance when solving the electroencephalography forward problem.
