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.

To know more about structure and work within the centre, please take a look at the brochure: " Centre for Cognition and Decision Making: Neurotechnologies, Biomedicine, Neurovisualisation." (Coming soon).

Our international team investigates neurobiological mechanisms of various cognitive processes: from language to decision making. We use multichannel EEG, MEG, fMRI, TMS and eye-tracking to uncover fundamental mechanisms of human behavior.

From Spain’s Basque Country to Moscow, an HSE Research Fellow Studies Human Memory and Metamemory

After receiving her PhD in Psychology from the University of the Basque Country, Beatriz Martín-Luengo arrived in Moscow in 2015 to join the Centre for Cognition & Decision Making at HSE as a Research Fellow. Since then, she has pursued research interests that focus on the ecological study of human memory (i.e., variables that affect our recollection) and metamemory, which is the introspective knowledge of one's own memory capabilities (and strategies that can aid memory) and the processes involved in memory self-monitoring.
