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.

Researchers Expand the Capabilities of Magnetoencephalography

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.

Losing Money Multiple Times Causes Plastic Changes in the Brain

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.

International Laboratory for Social Neurobiology invites Research Assistants

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.
