ANI research infrastructure houses four functional neuroimaging modalities, navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS) at Aalto TMS, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) at Advanced Magnetic Imaging (AMI) Centre, magnetoencephalography (MEG) at MEG Core and Aalto Behavioral Laboratory (ABL).
Aalto TMS facilities - Miscellaneous
ASL cheek/chinrest 819-2155
Adjustable ASL cheek/chinrest is perfect for mounting test subject's head in place during visual studies and preventing test subject movement under stimulating coil during TMS studies.
Vacuum cushions are filled with small granules which take shape when the air is removed. The pads can be shaped again by opening the valve. For example, vacuum cushion provide excellent hand support during EMG studies. Vacuum cushions are available in two sizes: 55x30 cm and 65x55 cm.
Salli saddle chair with elbow rest
Multi-adjustable Salli saddle chair with elbow rest gives you great support when doing TMS stimulations by hand.
Aalto Behavioral Laboratory (ABL) has various different monitoring and stimulus systems for behavioral studies in controlled environment. The laboratory consists of two measurement rooms: a shielded room which is especially intended for EEG and remote eye tracking measurements; and a room for behavioral measurements which doesn’t require shielded conditions.
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 offers excellent environment for 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 roo (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.
