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.
International Laboratory for Social Neurobiology, Institute of Cognitive Neurosciences, Higher School of Economics, together “H.Turner National Medical Research Center for Сhildren's Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery” of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation won the contest of grants of the RSF for conducting interdisciplinary projects.
In the 2020-2021 academic year, students of the HSE Master's Programme ‘Cognitive Sciences and Technologies: from Neuron to Cognition’ will be able to additionally apply for a continuous Master’s/PhD track. Studying in a single programme, they will participate in the international project iBRAIN, organized by leading European universities.
We are inviting applications to multiple positions of laboratory assistants to carry our behavioral experiments until the end of 2020 in our newly established international Laboratory of Social Neurobiology (LSN) at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, National Research University Higher School of Economics, Moscow (https://neuro.hse.ru/). Prof. Iiro P. Jääskeläinen is the Academic Supervisor, and Prof. Vasily Klucharev is the Director, of LSN.
