Institute for 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.

The stronger the functional brain connections, the less inclined someone is to punish others for unfair behaviour. This conclusion was reached by HSE researchers following a neuroimaging experiment. Their paper ‘Wired to punish? Electroencephalographic study of the resting-state neuronal oscillations underlying third-party punishment’ was published in the journal Neuroscience.
On July 1, 2021, at a meeting of the Centre for Cognition and Decision Making of the HSE University, the preliminary defence of Ph.D. thesis by Nikita Novikov on the topic "Modelling the effect of oscillations on a spiking network of working memory" will take place.
Academic supervisor: Gutkin Boris Samuel (Ph.D. Theoretical Neuroscience, Leading Research Fellow)
Beginning at 16:00.
What is affect and why is it important for humans? How can feelings be defined and what is their relation to emotions and consciousness? What might be used in making a soft robot? Professor Antonio Damasio (University of Southern California, USA) discussed these and other questions in his honorary lecture, entitled 'Feeling, Knowing, and Artificial Intelligence'.The talk was delivered on April 16 at the at the XXII April International Academic Conference held by HSE University jointly with Sberbank.
On April 16, as part of the XXII April International Academic Conference, will take place a lecture by one of the most influential thinkers and neurophysiologists of our time - Antonio Damasio.
Topic: "Feeling, Knowing and Artificial Intelligence"
We invite everyone to take part in the round table, which will be held online as part of the XXII April International Academic Conference on April 13 at 17:15.
