The Director of the High School of Economics (HSE) Centre for Bioelectric Interfaces, Professor Alexey Ossadtchi, and a Centre researcher, Nikolay Smetanin, delivered a scientific seminar and an open lecture, looking into the capabilities and prospects of magnetic encephalography for medical use and new methods for solving the inverse problem that play a key role in MEG data interpretation.

An open lecture held on February 12, 2020 focused on the capabilities of brain-computer interfaces (BCI), the cutting-edge research in this field and the experiments conducted currently by various research groups.

The open lecture included a demo of the BCI and an overview of the signal analysis and the learning process. Two students volunteered to try on the BCI, applying their thinking power to control objects and competing in covering the route in a neurocomputer game while monitoring their mental state.
