Student Profiles



Burachai Asawathaweeboon 2-nd year student, kingdom of Thailand

Why did you choose the program “Cognitive science and technologies from neuron to cognition”?

-From my background in Psychology, I interested in many topics such as neuroscience, cognition and perception. This course is really answer almost everything that I want to know.

 What advantages do you see in our program?

-I get the opportunity to acquire the knowledge from the Professors who have high experience from many countries. After my graduation, I can collaborate with these professor to conduct some interesting research. Also, we have many devices that we can use in our project. For example, EEG, TMS, tDCS and eye-tracking. Furthermore, we have collaboration with many institute in Russia. So, if we want to use fMRI or MEG in our research, It is possible to ask for their help.

 What is your scientific interests?

-Neuroeconomic and neuromarketing, Psychological disorders, Brain stimulation

 What are you going to do after your graduation?

I will go back home, teach in the Department of Psychology and make the MOU with HSE.







Venkat Kaushik Sake 1-st year student, India

Why did you choose the program “Cognitive science and technologies from neuron to cognition”?
I chose the program Cognitive Sciences and Technologies because of the university having a lot of international collaborations which would help in getting an exposure in multiple places. I was also advised by Prof. Myachykov when we met in a conference related to cognitive sciences before.
What advantages do you see in our program?
The advantages I see with the program are that being an engineer and manager once upon a time, it will help me learn research skills, obvious interaction with academics from different fields and a good deal of mobility internationally.

 What is your scientific interests?
My scientific interests are the whole brain functions which we know and may not yet know like the ones observed among anomalies at times but mostly they are Consciousness, Artificial Intelligence, Language understanding and Philosophy of Mind from an experimental perspective.

 What are you going to do after your graduation?
After graduation, I look forward to a PhD with a good supervisor in preferably the Ivy League universities. There are also other thoughts in my mind on Entrepreneurship which I was into before and from which taking a 2 year break through this master's. I may either go for startup using cognitive phenomena or an MBA in a top-class B-School and then getting into entrepreneurship.




 
VIDYA THIMMANAHALLI SOMASHEKARAPPA 1-st year student, India

Why did you choose the program “Cognitive science and technologies from neuron to cognition”?

 Cognitive Science has always fascinated me. The human body and its capacity for many marvelous things are tempered by the fragility of such an intricate system going wrong. Cognitive science is an interdisciplinary scientific study of the mind and its processes. It has given rise to models of human cognitive bias and risk perception, and has been influential in the development of behavioral finance part of economics.

 What advantages do you see in our program?

 Some of the most ground breaking research in the field of cognitive science has taken roots at HSE. Cognitive science has helped to uncover the root causes and results of specific dysfunctions. It is always interesting and astonishing to discover the undiscovered. The intensive structure of the curriculum allows one to involve completely and explore the subject. Students get hands on sessions in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation, EEG and Eye-Tracking labs.

 What are your   scientific interests?

 The constant advancement in research, methodology and technology is something I am impressed with and hope I can contribute in the future. I believe that research is the foundation for advancing healthcare services. I have developed a passion for research after I started working on two research projects during under graduation. Currently, I’m part of two research projects related to TMS and t-DCS.

 What are you going to do after your graduation?

 After graduation, I’m looking forward to pursue PhD.

 Life in Moscow?

 Moscow also known as third Rome, is one of the extraordinary, largest and richest cities. Hundreds of museums, Opera, Ballet, Winter sports and massive yet beautiful Moscow metros you use almost every day makes life even better. Moving to another country is always a challenge. I landed in Moscow during autumn, the time when everything bursts with its last beauty. Institute and friends helped me navigate in the city since I was unaware of Russian language. It was a tough journey in the beginning but as I learnt to read Russian I was confident enough to travel all by myself. It has been totally different and interesting living here. Local food is amazing (borsch and Smetana for vegetarians like me). Moscow during winter is a visual wonder. Dazzling colorful lights at parks, ice skating, snow board, ice hockey, skiing makes winter more special. So far, I love Moscow!






 Abdul-Raheem Mohammed 1-st year student, Ghana

Why did you choose the program “Cognitive science and technologies: from neuron to cognition”?

 I have this great passion of wanting to learn more about cognition and how it influences us in all spheres of life. I therefore did not hesitate to select this program because I see it as an important avenue to achieve this objective. I looked at the course content and what it promises to impart within the time duration and I felt that  was definitely the program to study. After spending some few months already into the program, I feel vindicated by the decision I made to join the program.

 What advantages do you see in our program?

 Well, it comes with several advantages. The emphasis that is placed on research is something that I felt is quite superior. I see myself to be well equipped in conducting a scientific research activity both during and after the programme.

 It also provides the foundation for one to lunch a career in the field of academia, specifically in Cognitive science and other allied fields. It provides a solid foundation for one to prepare for a PhD programm  anywhere in the world.

 The interdisciplinary nature of the program also provides  the necessary foundation to lunch a career in the field of Cognitive science especially to those who do not have such background prior to the program

 What is your  scientific interests?

 My scientific interests include the following

 Emotions and Cognition: That is the relationship among emotion, memory and other higher cognitive functions such as creativity, decision making and problem solving.

 What are you going to do after your graduation?

 My plans after graduation is to proceed with a PhD program. I want to learn and research more in these scientific interest I indicated above.








Maddex Farshchi 1-st year student, Iran

I came to Moscow 4 months ago. I had never been to Russia before and frankly speaking this experience appeared to be quite challenging. The new culture, language, everything here is different. However, all the people that I met were really friendly and helpful which definitely made my life in the new country much easier. Now I can say that I have quite a few good friends here and am fairly adapted to Moscow life.

 As for cognitive neuroscience-I consider it a really fascinating subject for studying and research. It gives a chance to learn more about human brain function and cognitive process.

 Studying at HSE is really a good experience for me mostly because of the brilliant academic staff that work here. Furthermore, HSE provides many good opportunities for conducting the research which I am particularly interested in.
