The Center for Language and Brain studies brain and language connection using cutting-edge methods and technologies. We are interested in the speech of kids and adults, mono- and bilinguals, patients with various neurogenic speech disorders. In collaboration with worldwide renowned specialists, we organize open lectures and seminars. HSE students can write a term paper supervised by the lab members, undertake an internship in one of our projects or join the lab as research assistants to do some serious science. 

Learn more about our projects, members and events, take a look at our latest publications, participate in our experiments or contact us. 

The center was established on April 1, 2018 on the basis of the Neurolinguistics laboratory, which has worked at HSE since 2013 under the leadership of Olga Dragoy.

Since 2018, the Centre is supported by the RF Government grant № 14.641.31.0004.
