Do sparse brain activity patterns underlie human cognition?
Speaker of the seminar, Iiro Jaaskelainen, is the scientific director of the International Laboratory of Social Neuroscience at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience of the Higher School of Economics, Professor of the Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering at Aalto University.
Readiness to Punish Others for Selfish Behaviour Explained by Functional Brain Connections
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.

Can the Brain Resist the Group Opinion?
Scientists at HSE University have learned that disagreeing with the opinion of other people leaves a ‘trace’ in brain activity, which allows the brain to later adjust its opinion in favour of the majority-held point of view. The article was published in Scientific Reports.
