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.
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.
We are very pleased to congratulate our colleague Boris Gutkin with publication in Nature Medicine, entitled: "Nicotine reverses hypofrontality in animal models of addiction and schizophrenia".
