Neural Network Developed at HSE Campus in Perm Will Determine Root Cause of Stroke in Patients

Specialists at HSE Campus in Perm and clinicians at Perm City Clinical Hospital No. 4, have been collaborating to develop a neural network capable of determining the root cause of a stroke. This marks the world's first attempt to create such a system, the developers note.

The study by researchers from IDLab and the Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience at HSE - Perm has made it to the top 30 world's best in the field of neuromarketing!

Leading HSE University Scientists to Receive Grants from Ideas Research Centre for Neuroscience Research

The Ideas Centre for Advanced Interdisciplinary Research has announced the results of its 2023 competition. Five leading neuroscientists will receive grants to open graduate positions for early-career researchers who want to work on solutions to fundamental problems in this area. Three of the competition winners are scientists from HSE University: Matteo Feurra (HSE University in Moscow), Anastasia Kolmogorova (HSE University in St Petersburg), and Sofia Kulikova (HSE University in Perm).

‘The “Neighbours in Research” Conference Has Become a Special Hallmark of HSE University in Perm’

The 10th anniversary scientific conference ‘Neighbours in Research’ was held at HSE University in Perm. This year it received the status of an international event—research was presented by scientists not only from different regions of Russia, but also from Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. The conference's key concept is interdisciplinarity, and as a result, reports were presented from various branches of science, including economics, linguistics, sociology, law, digital technologies, and neuroscience.

Welcome Aboard: Post-Doc Introductions

Every year, HSE hires post-doctoral researchers from all over the world. And in 2017-18, more than 30 of them started work at laboratories and research centres in a large range of fields and specializations. The HSE Lookis pleased to introduce this year’s international researchers, so that you can learn more about your colleagues and find out about opportunities for potential collaboration.

New Voices: Research Projects and Ideas

In 2015 HSE laboratories and centres chose 24 scholars as post-doctoral fellows in the fields of philosophy, history, data analysis, finance, and cognitive studies. University bulletin HSE Look introduces these researchers as well as the teams with which they are now working.

Brain Research and Blockchain Technologies Discussed at Perm Workshop on Applied Economic Modeling

How does the brain work? How does neuroeconomics use the study of brain activity? How can MRI help rehabilitation after a blood stroke? Are blockchain and bitcoin the biggest innovations in finance in the last decade? And what are the prospects for their development? These and some other questions were discussed at the Perm Workshop on Applied Economic Modeling, and open city workshop in December.
