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.
Researchers from the HSE Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience have proposed a new method to process magnetoencephalography (MEG) data, which helps find cortical activation areas with higher precision. The method can be used in both basic research and clinical practice to diagnose a wide range of neurological disorders and to prepare patients for brain surgery. The paper describing the algorithm was published in the journal NeuroImage.
Researchers at the HSE Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience have shown experimentally that economic activity can actively change the brain. Signals that predict regular financial losses evoke plastic changes in the cortex. Therefore, these signals are processed by the brain more meticulously, which helps to identify such situations more accurately. The article was published in Scientific Reports.
CBI Seminar 29.10: Stephanie Jones "Interpreting the Mechanisms and Meaning of MEG/EEG signals with the Human Neocortical Neurosolver (HNN) software"
We are very happy to announce that the next speaker in the Centre for Bioelectric Interfaces (CBI) online seminar series is going to be our U.S colleague, Dr. Stephanie R. Jones, Associate Professor at Brown University!
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.
A ‘Mega-Grant’ Competition for ground-breaking research projects funded by the Russian Ministry of Science and Higher Education was held for the seventh time, and this year’s competition winners included two projects that will be based at HSE University campuses. One research group will study dynamic systems at HSE – Nizhny Novgorod, and a new social neurobiology laboratory will begin work at HSE University in Moscow.
September 23-26, HSE University and Moscow State University of Psychology and Education will host lectures by KARL FRISTON, an outstanding British neuroscientist, scientific director of the Laboratory for Functional Neuroimaging at University College London
