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.
We invite everyone to take part in the round table, which will be held online as part of the XXII April International Academic Conference on April 13 at 17:15.
Topic: «(In)homogeneous (ir)rationality. How the brain makes decisions»

On March 17, 2021, a junior researcher at the Centre for Cognition & Decision Making, Mikhail Pokhodai, successfully received his PhD in Psychology with a thesis on "Modality of attention and syntactic choice in English and Russian languages"
Researchers at the HSE Institute for Cognitive Neurosciences have studied how transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) affects the primary motor cortex during and after stimulation. Scientists have shown that tACS affects the cortex only during online use (during stimulation). The article was published in Scientific Reports.
Organized by the Centre for Cognition & Decision Making, HSE University supported by I-Brain Erasmus+ project
Topic: "Neurotechnology and Freedom"
The Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience Invite HSE Students and PhD Students to Work as Part of Scientific Projects of the Centre for Cognition & Decision Making
Applications are accepted until March 4, 2021
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.
Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience, Higher School of Economics (Moscow, Russia) and Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris, France) announce the online I-Brain MiniSymposium in cognitive neuroscience, sponsored by I-Brain Erasmus project (http://ibrain.eu/).
Dear colleagues and students, we invite everyone interested to take part in the "iBrain Cognitive Neuroscience Direct track miniSymposium"on October 15 at 10:30
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.
