Can we really boost brain functions? Advanced neuroenhancement techniques

On May 30 you are kindly invited to the open talk «Can we really boost brain functions?  Advanced neuroenhancement techniques» within the HSE project «University Open to the City: HSE Talks».

Non Invasive Brain Stimulation (NIBS) techniques allow to establish relationships between brain areas and their functions and to induce transient behavioral changes. There is a recent trend in neuroscience to use these techniques in order to induce the so called "neuroenhancement", namely to increase brain activity in order to boost cognitive behavioral performance. We will discuss the effect size of cortical stimulation on brain performance.  

Lecturer Matteo Feurra, PhD in Psychology, Assistant Professor of the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Social Sciences, HSE.

Start time: 19.00.

Working language is English.
