Scientific activities

Our centre is currently pursuing several lines of research. These include active and passive decoding of neuronal processes during cognitive and neuroeconomical tasks, understanding the neurobiology behind speech production and comprehension, studying the dynamics of neuronal processes, neuro modelling, creating original technologies in functional brain-mapping, brain-computer interfaces, neuromonitoring, and neuromarketing.

The results of the centre’s research have broadened current understandings of the mechanisms of brain functioning and can be applied by specialists in various disciplines associated with neurobiology: engineers, doctors, neurobiologists, economists, psychologists and mathematicians. For example, the brain-computer interface allows for human activity to be connected directly to a computer. This can be used in operators’ work and in the gaming industry. Furthermore, this technology can help people experiencing paralysis return to normal life. Neuromapping and neuroimaging allow normal and impaired brain activity to be studied non-invasively, i.e., without interfering directly with the brain (TMS, tDCS, EEG, MEG, and fMRI).
