VII International school for young scientists 'Active and passive methods of brain research'


Many important discoveries have been made in the field of functional and morpho-physiological brain mapping. These discoveries significantly expand our understanding of how the brain works. Modern technologies, such as TMS, TES, and EEG, efficiently evaluate the role of the various structures of the brain in specific cognitive domains and promote understanding of the complex work of the whole brain.

School participants have a unique opportunity to get hands-on experience with these techniques (TMS, TES, EEG) and learn about their advantages and disadvantages. The program also covers topics on data analysis and interpretation.

The school focuses on the following topics:

How does the human brain recognize specific environmental stimuli? What areas of the brain are involved in the work of this process? Particular emphasis is placed on methods related to brain stimulation.

Organizers and invited experts are from:

  • Higher School of Economics (Russia)
  • Aalto University (Finland)
  • Università degli Studi di Siena (Italy)
  • Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (Germany)


All lectures and workshops will be held at HSE (TMS Laboratory, EEG Laboratory and Behavior Laboratory).
