MEG reservation calendar

In order to make a reservation for time in the MEG laboratory you first need to have a research permission to use MEG. For this, please contact or call 040 805 3533 (Tiina Parviainen).

The Jyväskylä Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Research gives user rights to "Meg Lab" Google calendar after receiving a research permission. Unless stated otherwise via the internal messaging of JYU MEG users, each project can reserve 2 full days (can be devided to max 4 half days) of measurement time per calendar month. And 1 measurement day = 8h unless otherwise agreed with MEG personnel. And even then, 10h of total lab time/day and/or total 40h/week should not be exceeded in normal situation due to the reasons of helium recycling. So please agree about the extended measurement days or weeks beforehand.

In addition, all free time slots within the two weeks and during weekdays are free for reservation. All reserved time slots (excluding pilots) should have a measurement subject agreed. This means that all the time slots should be reserved according to real, agreed measurements. For making measurement reservations, it is possible to hold on to the reserved time slots for two to three days. How far in to the future projects can make reservations should be discussed with MEG personnel.

Measurements during weekends are possible. However, due to the helium recycling, this has to be agreed weekend-day-by-weekend-day well before with MEG personnel. This way we can make sure, that there will be helium also for other users.
