AMI Centre facilities - Response devices

AMI Centre has a variety of different response devices. Detailed instructions on how to use these devices can be found from the AMI Centre documents page.


LUMItouch is a hand held fiber optic patient response system designed specifically for use in functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging and similar environments. The system consists of metal free keypads connected via fiber optic cable to an optoelectronic controller unit. The response keypads and cabling are fabricated from 100% plastic materials and therefore do not cause electromagnetic interference. This feature is critical for use in MRI environments where normal electromechanical switches with conductor wiring will interfere with or damage the sensitive scanning head. (from LUMItouch brochure).

AMI Centre has two LUMItouch response pads, both including four keyboard like response buttons. Check the documents page for the user manual of LUMItouch response pads.



AMI Centre has three fORP interfaces and five different response devices. All handheld optic response devices are non-magnetic, non-electronic, plastic and designed for fMRI and MEG. fORP response system is manufactured by Current Designs. Check the documents page for detailed user manual.

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.
