We consider the inverse problem of determining dipole sources, by using boundary measurements. A local Lipshitz stability is established and a cost function transforming our inverse problem into an optimization one is proposed. This cost function involves the solutions computed from both the prescribed and measured data through their values inside the domain and not only on the boundary. An application to inverse EEG problem for which numerical experiments are performed for three concentric spheres representing the scalp, skull and brain as the model of the head, has been proposed.
