Leading HSE University Scientists to Receive Grants from Ideas Research Centre for Neuroscience Research
The Ideas Centre for Advanced Interdisciplinary Research has announced the results of its 2023 competition. Five leading neuroscientists will receive grants to open graduate positions for early-career researchers who want to work on solutions to fundamental problems in this area. Three of the competition winners are scientists from HSE University: Matteo Feurra (HSE University in Moscow), Anastasia Kolmogorova (HSE University in St Petersburg), and Sofia Kulikova (HSE University in Perm).
December 8, from 11 a.m. - till 4 p.m. Format - online
The annual conference “Core and Cognition: Communication Principles. Neuroimaging and Clinical Applications (CCCP-2022)"
The conference will be held in English in a mixed format (offline + online), on December 21-22.
On October 27-30, the VIII International School for Young Scientists "Active and Passive Methods of Brain Research" was held at the HSE Institute of Cognitive Neurosciences.
Researchers caused people to behave less rationally by suppressing activity in specific parts of the brain
Researchers at the HSE Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience have shown experimentally that magnetic stimulation of the prefrontal cortex of the brain causes test subjects to act less rationally, changing how they assess possible outcomes at the moment they make risky decisions. The scientists believe that the discovery will provide a better understanding of the mechanisms that give rise to gaming addiction. The results of the study were published in the journal Scientific Reports .
