Aalto NeuroImaging (ANI) Infrastructure
Aalto Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Aalto TMS was inaugurated in early 2013. Our main research tools are two neuronavigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) systems (Bistim2 & Rapid2, Magstim) compined with electroencephalogram (EEG) mapping (NeurOne, Mega Electronics Ltd). The lab is based in Magneettitalo in Otaniemi, and the close proximity of MRI-scanner makes it easy to compine anatomical MRI-images to TMS neuronavigation and makes offline fMRI-TMS studies accessible. The laboratory locates in Otakaari 5 I, close to ANI facilities like AMI Centre and Aalto TMS. See all the relevant information and documents from the dropdown menus below.
Facilities, rates and contact
All the ANI laboratories and some of the equipment (when used separately outside the lab) must be reserved before use. To make a reservation you need a username and password for the reservation system (anitime.aalto.fi).
A new user has to complete four steps before measurements can be done at Aalto TMS. See details of these four steps below.
- Participate in Aalto TMS lab's user training and safety course. The course contains safety information and user training for the measurement systems. For information about the course and course schedules please contact [email protected]
- All studies involving human subjects must acquire a supporting statement from appropriate ethics committee (e.g. from Aalto University (available only from Aalto network), Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa (in Finnish) or University of Helsinki).
- The scientific director accepts the research permission, which includes among others signature by the principal investigator, the names of people who are allowed to make reservations with this research permission, and the number of hours, which are also denoted in the financial obligation by the user.
- Laboratory can be reserved at the internet.
