On October 27-30, the VIII International School for Young Scientists "Active and Passive Methods of Brain Research" was held at the HSE Institute of Cognitive Neurosciences.
Medical advances are causing a gradual increase in average life expectancy. However, this comes at a price, as the number of cases of dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases grows with age. Researchers from HSE University (Russia) and Northumbria University (UK) have found that bilingualism can slow down and mitigate the course of age-related changes in the human brain. The study was published in Frontiers in Psychology.
Colleagues from the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience took part in the first online conference in Russia dedicated to making the neuroscience advancments accessible to people with neurological differences.
Researchers from HSE University have shown how the brain works differently depending on whether a subject is dealing with common (shared) or private natural resources. The ventral striatum—the so-called pleasure centre—plays a significant role in this process. The study has been published by Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience.

Erasmus days with industrial partners of iBrain: NeuroTrend, Mitsar and Fusion Agency (event completed)
Date: 15 October 2021 Time: 14.00 (Moscow time)
Topic: «(In)homogeneous (ir)rationality. How the brain makes decisions»
Chairman / Co-chairman (Vasily Klucharev / Boris Gutkin)
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.
