Laboratories

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.

megcore

MEG Core

MEG Core offers excellent environment for Magnetoencephalography (MEG) measurements. MEG Core has a modern 306-channel MEG device (Elekta Neuromag™, Elekta Oy, Helsinki, Finland) in a high-end 3-layered magneticaly shielded room (Imedco AG, Hägendorf, Switzerland). MEG Core has extremely low magnetic ambient noise level. MEG Core has a wide variety of MEG-compatible stimulators and monitoring devices.

Aalto TMS

Aalto Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Aalto TMS offers researchers unique possibilities for multi-modal neuroimaging techniques. The laboratory contains top-of-the-line electroencelography (EEG) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) systems. Neuronavigated TMS-system with two stimulation units and various coils makes numerous TMS and rTMS examination setups possible. 64 ch EEG-system, specially designed for co-registration with TMS, can be used to map stimulus responses simultaneously.
