CBRU hosts several electroencephalography (EEG) devices, a navigated transcranial magnetic brain stimulation (TMS) device, behavioral testing space and a plethora of devices for collecting data on autonomous nervous system activity and eye movements.
Haartmaninkatu 3, Helsinki
Two Biosemi ActiveTwo EEG devices with up to 256 channels, Brain Products BrainAmp DC (64 channels), and two Brain Products QuickAmp (32 channels) amplifiers. Brain Products LiveAmp mobile amplifiers with 32 channels.
Nexstim NBS System 4.3 navigated TMS device with EEG (BrainAmp DC with 64-channels).
An eye-tracking device, EyeLink 1000 Plus, and plenty of equipment for collecting data on autonomic nervous system (ANS) activity, to be used separately or coupled with EEG or TMS.
Behavioral and neuropsychological testing setups.
CBRU hosts an analysis room with a range of software for analyzing data obtained from various labs at CoBra. Lab users are offered multiple complete pipelines for data analysis from basic processing to statistics including a wide range of commercial and open-source tools.
Lab users can use the latest Besa tools, including Besa Research for basic processing and advanced source modeling, Besa MRI for individual head models, and Besa Statistics for advanced cluster permutation statistics for the sensor, source, and time-frequency data.
Also, Brain Vision Analyzer is available for EEG signal processing and analysis.
We are currently revising the user fees. Meanwhile, if you are interested in our services, please, be in touch with CoBra Chair, Prof. Teija Kujala (teija.m.kujala[at]Helsinki.fi).
For all new users, introductory sessions on how to operate in the laboratory are mandatory and included in the lab fee. For all new projects, a quality assurance session is mandatory.
For any questions, do not hesitate to contact CoBra Chair Teija Kujala (teija.m.kujala[at]Helsinki.fi). Time is allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis and booking the lab(s) is done using an internal booking software.
The BioMag Laboratory at Helsinki University Hospital provides facilities for basic research, functional brain imaging diagnostics, especially on the preoperative assessment of epilepsy patients, and for developing rehabilitation approaches for clinical purposes. Its main facilities include magnetoencephalography (MEG), navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), near-infrared spectroscopic imaging (NIRSI), and magnetocardiography (MCG).
Meilahti Tower Hospital, Haartmaninkatu 4, 00290 Helsinki.
Outside users should contact Hanna Renvall (firstname.lastname@example.org) for reservation inquiries. After research permission in HUH has been granted, time can be booked using the BioMag reservation system, available for users via the internet.
For research affiliated with the University of Helsinki, Helsinki University Hospital or Aalto University, the BioMag facilities are currently available without direct fees for users. For other organizations or users, please contact Hanna Renvall (hanna.renvall(at)hus.fi).
For starting a research project, a general level description of the BioMag facilities is available on request. For researchers affiliated with UH, HUH, or AU, support in carrying out measurements can be agreed on. For more extensive familiarization or analysis assistance, please contact Hanna Renvall (email@example.com).
BABA (BAby Brain Activity) is the first clinical research center in Finland dedicated to studying baby brain activity using a wide range of behavioral and electroencephalography (EEG) methods.
Helsinki University Central Hospital, Children's Castle, Lastenlinnantie 2
Due to the clinical nature of the BABA center, access to the laboratory and its use are always decided on a case by case basis. For access, contact sampsa.vanhatalo(at)helsinki.fi
Due to the range of clinical populations studied in the center, costs can drastically vary between the studies. Once a study plan is finalized, the plan is reviewed by the BABA center personnel, after which fees are determined.
Clinical studies require the responsible researcher to be a qualified medical doctor.
