Let the fight begin: Tatiana Bolgina at the first round of Research Battles in HSE!
On March, 18 HSE launched a new project called Research Battles. Our lab member Tatiana Bolgina, a 4-th year student from Linguistics, took part in the first battle of the season.
During first round of the Research Battles 5 candidates pre-selected among the HSE students were required to summarise their research project in a maximum of 10 minutes and present it to an audience of non-scientists and scientists alike, thus keeping it clear, simple and engaging. Tatiana Bolgina became the first runner-up with her talk on neurolinguistics and the lab's project Effects of familial handedness on language lateralization in the brain. Using a neuroanatomical brain model she demonstrated the variation observed in the localisation of speech zones for the right- and left-handers as well as ambidextrous people.
