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.


The defense of master theses on the program "Cognitive sciences and technologies" was on June 2.

CDM centre has participated in Russia Today's reportage about money.

The centre has been presented by junior scientific staff member Oxana Zinchenko.
