Aalto NeuroImaging (ANI) Infrastructure
MEG Core has gradually developed from an in-house MEG laboratory of the Low Temperature Laboratory of the Helsinki University of Technology to a research infrastructure serving Aalto University and other researchers. MEG Core facilitates multidisciplinary brain imaging. We also organise MEG introductory training for new MEG users together with MEGIN Oy.
MEG Core has moved to new renovated facilities at Puumiehenkuja in 2008. At the same time, the magnetically shielded room (MSR) and MEG device were updated. The premises have very low ambient magnetic noise.
