Centre for Cognition & Decision Making was founded as a part of the Department of Psychology, HSE to develop russian cognitive sciences, as well as to continue establishing interdisciplinary approach in cognitive research.
Research conducted within the centre focuses on neuroeconomics, neyrodynamics, psychophysiology and neurobiology of language and speech, theoretical neuroscience. We apply EEG, MEG, fMRI and TMS neuroimaging technologies to study fundamental mechanisms of brain processing, decision making and social influences on human behaviour. Results would be of interest for specialists of various backgrounds, correlated with neuroeconomics: neurobiologists, economists, psychologiests and mathematicians.
Сотрудники Института когнитивных нейронаук из научной группы Нейродинамики выиграли грант на конкурсе лучших проектов фундаментальных научных исследований, выполняемых ведущими молодежными коллективами («Стабильность»).
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
September 4, 2019 was a day of firsts for the School of Psychology and the Centre for Cognition and Decision Making. Zachary Yaple, who was born in the United States and grew up in England, defended his dissertation, 'Neurophysiological Correlates of Risky Decision-Making'. His defense marked the first PhD to be prepared at the Centre for Cognition and Decision Making and the first PhD to be awarded to an international student by the Doctoral School of Psychology.
The HSE will host the first seminar on neuroeconomics, organized jointly with École normale supérieure (Paris). Neuroeconomics studies the decision-making process and uses economic approaches to study the brain and achieve neuroscience to adjust economic decision-making models.
The symposium will take place on September 5 2019 as part of the 25th “Architectures and Mechanisms of Language Processing”
