Active and passive methods of brain research
The school focuses on the following topics: how the human brain recognizes specific environmental stimuli, how it reacts to them and what areas of the brain are involved in this process. The main scope of the school is various methods of brain stimulation.
About school: Many important discoveries have been made in the field of functional and morpho-physiological brain mapping. These discoveries significantly expand our understanding of how the brain works. Modern technologies, such as TMS, TES, and EEG, efficiently evaluate the role of the various structures of the brain in specific cognitive domains and promote understanding of the complex work of the whole brain.
School participants have a unique opportunity to get hands-on experience with these techniques (TMS, TES, EEG) and learn about their advantages and disadvantages. The program also covers topics on data analysis and interpretation.
The school is designed for: undergraduate and graduate students, young researchers
Organizers and invited experts are from:
Higher School of Economics (Russia),
Research Center of Neurology (Russia),
Aalto University (Finland),
ETH Zurich (Switzerland).
All lectures and workshops will be held at HSE (TMS Laboratory, EEG Laboratory and Behavior Laboratory).
The school will be in English.
Day 1: TMS and TDCS tools of active decoding of the human brain activity
Day 2: Perspectives of active brain mapping
School format: 2 days 7 hours per day. School program includes lectures, practice sessions, and roundtables.
Registration: To participate, please register before November 20th.
