Aalto NeuroImaging (ANI) Infrastructure


Aalto NeuroImaging (ANI) Infrastructure

ANI research infrastructure houses three functional neuroimaging modalities, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) at Advanced Magnetic Imaging (AMI) Centre, magnetoencephalography (MEG) at MEG Core and Aalto Behavioral Laboratory (ABL). Aalto TMS laboratory was abolished in the fall of 2023.

AMI Centre

Advanced Magnetic Imaging Centre

AMI Centre maintains a research-dedicated 3T-MRI scanner, develops and maintains the related infrastructure and offers services to multiple research teams. Typical measurements at AMI Centre include functional and structural brain imaging or diffusion tensor imaging. In addition, AMI Centre develops new methods and applications of MRI technology.

MEG Core

MEG Core

MEG Core offers excellent environment for magnetoencephalography (MEG). MEG Core has a state-of-the-art 306-channel MEG device (MEGIN TRIUX neo, MEGIN Oy, Helsinki, Finland) in a high-end 3-layered magnetically shielded room (Imedco AG, Hägendorf, Switzerland). MEG Core has extremely low magnetic ambient noise level and a wide variety of MEG-compatible stimulators and monitoring devices for successful MEG measurements.

Risto Ilmoniemi: The most important thing is having confidence that others will be there to support and help when needed

'I have thought many times that I am going to give up the whole thing: this is not going to work. But I recover quickly: often already on the next day, optimism is reborn.'

Koos Zevenhoven: The scientific world doesn't know this kind of unusual path very well

'There have also been PhD students in my group, and I haven’t been able to officially act as their advisor. Some of my students have finished their PhD before me.'

Riitta Hari: The exploration of the human brain and mind is captivating

'According to Olli Lounasmaa, ten meters is a distance where half of the information gets lost: the further you are from another researcher, the fewer unexpected conversations arise, and the more refreshing science gossip goes unheard. This is food for thought for remote workers as well.'
