How does the brain behave during simultaneous interpreting?

A recent edition of Popular Mechanics has featured an article about the study "Testing the efforts model of simultaneous interpreting: An ERP study" by Roman Koshkin, Yury Shtyrov, Andriy Myachykov and Alex Ossadtchi originally published in PLoS ONE in 2008.

ExoRehab Spotlights 2018 Symposium

Photo report from the international symposium ExoRehab Spotlights 2018 that took place on December 5 in Moscow.
Researchers of the Center for Bioelectric Interfaces Nikolai Smetanin, Aleksandra Kuznetsova and Alexei Ossadtchi presented Russia's first EEG-based neural interface that uses lower limb motor imagery for exoskeleton control. Alexei Ossadtchi also made a presentation "BCI for walk decoding".
This work has been done in collaboration with the Russian company ExoAtlet and Denis Lyovin who had volunteered to pilot the exoskeleton.

Congrats to Anastasiya Belinskaya on winning a studentship from the Oxford Russia Fund!

We congratulate our colleague Anastasiya Belinskaya on winning a studentship from the Oxford Russia Fund! The studentship is awarded to graduate students for 2018 and 2019 based on academic merit and research performance. Anastasiya's master thesis project is titled "The effect of feedback signal presentation latency on the effectiveness of training in neurofeedback paradigm" and is supervised by Prof. Alex Ossadtchi.

Successful ECoG decoding in real time!

Today marks the successful completion of the first year of our research project funded by Megagrant #14.641.31.0003 "Bi-directional ECoG BCIs for control, stimulation and communication" (lead scientist: Mikhail Lebedev).

Conference "Rehabilitation based on Neurotechnologies"

Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University is hosting a conference "Rehabilitation based on Neurotechnologies" in Moscow on November 29. Alexei Ossadtchi will give a talk on the topic "Electrocorticographic neurointerface for restoring lost functions and passive mapping of irreplaceable cortex", and Mikhail Lebedev will give a talk on the topic "Intracranial brain-computer interfaces: from monkey to human."

Our clinical studies

Megagrant #14.641.31.0000. Lead scientist: Mikhail Lebedev. Invasive neural interfaces involve the analysis of electrocortigocraphical (ECoG) data recorded from subdurally implanted electrode arrays. This can be done in patients who require implanting an electrode array for medical reasons, therefore ECoG recording sessions are conducted exclusively in clinical settings. Our Center collaborates with two clinics: Clinical Medical Center of the Yevdokimov Moscow State Medico-Dental University and the Polenov Russian Research Institute of Neurosurgery.
