AMI Centre facilities - MRI system

MRI scanner

What should I write in my manuscript's Methods section?

Here is an example:

(Functional) magnetic resonance imaging experiments were performed on a 3 T MAGNETOM Skyra whole-body scanner (Siemens Healthcare, Erlangen, Germany), using a standard 20-channel head-neck coil.


    Following RF-coils are available at the AMI centre:

    Head coils Other coils
    • 20 channel head/neck coil, receiving
    • 30 channel head coil, receiving
    • 32 channel head coil, receiving
    • body, transmitting and receiving
    • 4 channel flex coils (large and small), receiving

    32 channel head coil and 20 channel head/neck coil have coil elements close to subject's eyes which can limit the binocular field of view which should be taken into account when designing your experiment. Please see the following PDF-document for further details.

    In addition, AMI centre has a custom modified 30 channel head coil which offers a free binocular field of view. See the following PDF-document for further details.


    Aalto NeuroImaging Infrastructure

    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 Behavioral Laboratory

    Aalto Behavioral Laboratory

    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.

    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.

    Magnetoencephalography (MEG)

    MEG Core

    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.
