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).
Advanced Magnetic Imaging Centre
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.
AMI Centre was inaugurated in February 2002. Our main research tool is a 3 T whole-body MRI scanner (Magnetom Skyra, Siemens), owned by the Aalto University School of Science.
AMI Centre is an administrative subdivision of the Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering at Aalto University School of Science, but it has independent budgetary authority. AMI Centre is part of NEUROIMAGING consortium, whose steering board comprises two members from Aalto University, two from the University of Helsinki, and two from Hospital district of Helsinki and Uusimaa. AMI Centre provides an innovative environment for development and promotion of new magnetic resonance imaging methods. If you would like know more about AMI Centre and research, please see the annual reports.
The laboratory locates in Otakaari 5 I, close to ANI facilities like AMI Centre and Aalto TMS. See all the relevant information and documents from the dropdown menus below.
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.
