VI International school for young scientists

Active and passive methods of brain research


The school focuses on the following topics:

How does the human brain recognize specific environmental stimuli? What areas of the brain are involved in the work of this process? Particular emphasis is placed on methods related to 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.

Dates: 19-21 of April, 2019

Organizers and invited experts are from:

Higher School of Economics (Russia)
Aalto University (Finland)
Università degli Studi di Siena (Italy)
Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (Germany)

All lectures and workshops will be held at HSE (TMS Laboratory, EEG Laboratory and Behavior Laboratory).

School topics:

Day 1: Basics of non-invasive brain stimulation

Day 2: Combination of different neurostimulation techniques

Day 3: Estimation of neurostimulation / neuroimaging data


School format:

3 days 7 hours per day. School program includes lectures, hands on sessions and roundtables.


All lectures and practical classes are conducted only in English.

School fee:

For participation in the school is required to pay a fee of 1000 rubles. You can contact the organizers if you can justify the need for a discount to pay the fee.
