Introduction
I develop ways to measure, understand, and influence the brain using MEG, EEG, and TMS. In 1980's, I developed MEG devices and solutions to the MEG/EEG forward & inverse problems (aaltodoc.aalto.fi/handle/123456789/15355). In 1990's, I introduced navigated TMS and TMS-EEG; I founded Nexstim Plc to commercialize these. In 2008-12, I led an EU project to develop hybrid MEG-MRI; this continued as FET Open BREAKBEN project (2016–19) and EU Innovation Launchpad and Business Finland (2019-21) projects. I now aim at multi-locus TMS with closed-loop operation, funded by the Academy of Finland, Erkko Foundation (mTMS within fMRI magnet) and ERC Synergy (ConnectToBrain project with Gian Luca Romani and Ulf Ziemann). My ambition is to understand the physics of the brain and mind, guided by logic.
