This research-driven programme explores cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and neuro-modelling. Taught in close cooperation with the École Normale Supérieure and Aarhus University, the programme combines lectures with practical training at prominent laboratories in Moscow and at international partner institutions. Graduates work in international research laboratories and centers, at private companies focusing on user interface optimization and evaluation projects, as well as at universities and schools. They are also involved with projects on brain-computer interface development and clinical application, including pre-surgery brain mapping, neuromarketing, and usability research.
