Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (ICN) is a research subdivision of HSE aiming at the development of applied and theoretical studies in the field of cognitive science and neurotechnology.
Our areas of research cover such topics as perception, communication, attention, cognitive control, memory, decision making, behavioral genetics, modeling of cognitive processes and computational neuroscience, including dynamic brain connectiomics in health and pathology.
A recent edition of Popular Mechanics has featured an article about the study "Testing the efforts model of simultaneous interpreting: An ERP study" by Roman Koshkin, Yury Shtyrov, Andriy Myachykov and Alex Ossadtchi originally published in PLoS ONE in 2008.
Photo report from the international symposium ExoRehab Spotlights 2018 that took place on December 5 in Moscow.
Researchers of the Center for Bioelectric Interfaces Nikolai Smetanin, Aleksandra Kuznetsova and Alexei Ossadtchi presented Russia's first EEG-based neural interface that uses lower limb motor imagery for exoskeleton control. Alexei Ossadtchi also made a presentation "BCI for walk decoding".
This work has been done in collaboration with the Russian company ExoAtlet and Denis Lyovin who had volunteered to pilot the exoskeleton.

Mikhail Lebedev will make a report at The Turner Scientific Research Institute for Children`s Orthopedics
December 7, 2018. Mikhail Lebedev will make an invited speech at the round table at The Turner Scientific Research Institute for Children`s Orthopedics on the topic "Possibilities of non-invasive spinal and cranial stimulation in the complex treatment of patients with neuroorthopedic pathology"
October, 29-30 the Cortical Codes: Control & Perception (CCCP) conference will be held in HSE, Moscow.
The new institute is headed by Vasily Klucharev, a professor at the Higher School of Economics, who previously worked as Head of the School of Psychology. Vasily Klucharev told the HSE news team about what the School managed to achieve in four years, what the new institute will do and how attitudes towards psychology and neuroscience are changing.
