Neuropsy Lab explores how cognitive abilities improve in children during their maturation, and which neurobiological constructs determine individual differences in their development. To find answers to these questions, we use classic and contemporary measures of mental-attentional capacity in conjunction with cutting edge physiological and neuroimaging technologies such as ultrasound, eye-tracking and magnetic resonance imaging.

Cognitive abilities are the higher brain functions allowing us to perceive, filter, memorize, process and restore information. These abilities correspond to mental actions we take to solve problems and acquire knowledge in everyday life. Cognitive processes improve throughout childhood and adolescence and they are highly linked to academic achievement and professional success.

Mental-attentional capacity is one of core cognitive abilities, it is defined as a component of working memory, which improve in children during their maturation and corresponds to the amount of information that a person can simultaneously hold and process in his/her mind.


The new publication of our Lab's employee

Congratulations to Valentina Bachurina and colleagues for their publication "A machine learning investigation of factors that contribute to predicting cognitive performance: Difficulty level, reaction time and eye-movements" in Decision Support Systems.

Participation of Neuropsy Lab's team in the "School of Real Affairs"

Anastasiia Liashenko, Zhanna Chuikova, Asya Istomina, and Margarita Yashina, members of Neuropsy Lab, took part in the international project competition, called "School of Real Affairs", within the framework of which gave students an opportunity to try themselves in the science field.

An event for schoolchildren

Scientific seminar for schoolers “Psychology and neuroscience”

Annotation: Last Sunday (19.09) we held a seminar for school children. Members of Neuropsy Lab gave young visitors lectures about various brain studies and their application in psychology.

Open lecture: “What neural connections can tell us about brain development?"

HSE Open Lectures holds public talks with young scientists. The September lectures are dedicated to cognitive neurosciences. Our colleague, Andrei Faber, will talk about formation of  neural connections and their role in the development of intellectual abilities. The lecture will be held on September 28, 19:30 as a part of the HSE project "University Open to the City".

New research direction in the laboratory as part of the Project Group Competition

Laboratory members received support for research on "The development of types of imagination in preschool children: cognitive and ontogenetic mechanisms".

Researchers of Neuropsy Lab took part at the virtual Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society

Our Laboratory staff together with colleagues from HSE (Saint Petersburg) and University of California, Irvine, spoke at the 43rd Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society, 27-29 July 2021.

Researchers of Neuropsy Lab gave lectures as a part of the educational module "Cognitive Research Methods" at NTU Sirius, Sochi

On the 10 of July Neuropsy Lab members Arsalidou Marie, Yulia Sudorgina, Valentina Bachurina, Andrey Faber, Maria Zherdeva as well as Roman Tikhonov (HSE, St. Petersburg) gave lectures to the students of the module "Methods of Cognitive Research" as a part of the educational module at NTU Sirius.
