The Institute of Higher Nervous Activity and Neurophysiology of Russian Academy of Sciences (IHNA http://www.ihna.ru/en/) carries out a broad spectrum of neuroscience research dealing with both animal models and noninvasive approaches to study brain functions. Methods used in research vary from molecular biology and genome manipulations to the whole range of electrophysiological approaches, optical and magneto-resonance tomography methods of imaging brain activity. IHNA collaborates with many medical institutions in Moscow such as Burdenko Research Institute of Neurosurgery, Center of Speech Pathology and Neurohabilitation, the Institute of Medical-Biological Problems RAS. Academic staff of IHNA also acts as experts in academic and scientific councils, and giving courses in several national and state Universities including National Research University Higher School of Economics. IHNA has its own Ph.D. programme in neurophysiology for students having Diploma or Master of Science in Biology, Physiology, Physics, Medicine and Psychology. For many years IHNA provides an experimental research site for Master and Bachelor students from Moscow Universities interesting in neuroscience, in this case, specialists from IHNA act as scientific supervisors for students from other HEIs. Сollaboration with Universities at the level of student research promotes the flow of candidates to IHNA’ doctoral programme and greater inclusion of young scientists to neuroscience research.
