NEUROIMAGING Seminar Series
With the NEUROIMAGING Seminar Series, we aim to highlight recently published,
conceptually and/or technically exciting research that has importantly benefitted
from the expertise and equipment available in the NEUROIMAGING infrastructure (Aalto NeuroImaging
and BioMag-laboratory). The seminars are open to everyone and targeted especially to users of NEUROIMAGING
and the Finnish Biomedical Imaging Node (FiBI) of Euro-BioImaging.
The grand opening of the seminar series took place online 5.11.2021 by a lecture: MEG for visual neuroscience, by Linda Henriksson, Senior University Lecturer, Aalto University.
The seminar series is held online in Zoom:
