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).
AMI Centre facilities - Stimulus systems
Many of the stimulus systems used in AMI Centre are custom-built by AMI personnel and users. Here you can find more information on the various stimulus systems used for fMRI research.
Our stimulus PC is a custom build. Main specifications and stimulus software are:

AMI Centre has three different auditory systems which are described below. The default auditory settings include:
- Stimulus PC
- RME UFX
- Low pass filter (KAR ADU)
- Crown CT8150 power amplifier
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 offers researchers unique possibilities for multi-modal neuroimaging techniques. The laboratory contains top-of-the-line electroencelography (EEG) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) systems.
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.
