Interdisciplinary Summer School on Cognitive Neuroscience, Neuroeducation and Applied Neurotechnologies

An intensive 72 academic hours course (2 credits) course will give students an insight into the state of art in a rapidly developing nowadays and extremely prominent domains of NEUROSCIENCE. During this interdisciplinary summer school, classes by leading researchers will give a broad overview of current research topics and findings addressing multiple research granularity levels in neuroscience and of applied technologies perspectives. Working Language: English

The key features:
Core presentations will be given jointly by Russian and German neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists, psychophysiologists, specialists in neuroinformatics and artificial neural networks. Summer school can help students to unveil fundamental and practical aspects of cognitive and educational neuroscience, psychophysiology, neurogenetics, neuroinformatics, biofeedback, brain-computer interfaces, statistical methods, psychological diagnostics, most prominent neuroimaging methods.

Lectures will be followed by afternoon workshops and hand-on sessions, where students are encouraged to interact and exchange their opinions across disciplines. Some practical classes will be performed in teams where students with psychophysiological, technical or IT background can cooperate and discuss practical solutions of various applied tasks. Summer school provides the opportunity for students to present their own work and to discuss and develop their ideas with academics during project session. They also will have an opportunity to receive feedback from experts in related research fields.

Interdisciplinary Summer School will take place in Belgorod State National Research University, from 03-08 June 2019, 9 am – 6 pm every day.

The Host institutions are Research and Project Centre for Cognitive Neurosciences and Neurotechnologies, Faculty of Psychology of Pedagogical Institute, Institute of Engineering and Digital Technologies.
