Neuropsy Lab researcher Tatyana Kotova spoke about the cognitive development of infants and social learning.

A note from our colleague about the cognitive development of infants appeared in the media.
What do we teach babies, and what can they learn by themselves? How does this process in humans differ from the transfer of skills in animals? A cognitive psychologist Tatyana Kotova explains these questions.

Neuropsy Lab held an open lecture at Moscow school on brain research

Laboratory for the Neurobiological Foundations of Cognitive Development holds lectures in Moscow schools as a part of the "Meet a Scientist" project. The head of laboratory Marie Arsalidou visited school 1501 in the center region of Moscow with an open lecture in English language. Students from grades 8–11 learnt how the human brain works, which parts of the brain are involved in solving mathematical problems. Moreover, they took an opportunity to receive an answers to their questions directly from the scientist.

Neuropsy Lab invites you to participate in an eye tracking study

Neuropsy Lab conducts a research on mental-attentional capacity using cutting edge neuroimaging techniques. Eye-tracking technology is a growing field used to detect eye movements and analyze human processing of visual information. Combining eye gaze analysis with independent cognitive measures can help us to understand key processes underlying in solving cognitive tasks.

The second seminar on "Basic introduction to R" was held at Neuropsy Lab

Anastasia Liashenko, a team member of Laboratory for the Neurobiological Foundations of Cognitive Development, conducted the second introductory seminar on the basics of programming in R for beginners. The students get acquainted with the package for data visualization. The workshop covered plotting of basic graphs using ggplot2 package and the features of graph elements: adding the labels of axes and component legends, changing fonts, and choosing colors.
