Research Projects

Current projects

  1. Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI), Grant #1110034 from Skolkovo foundation.
  2. Nonstationarity of EEG. Experimental and theoretical analysis of mechanisms underlying human brain microstates during mental activity and in pathological states. Algorithms and software for the segmental analysis of EEG.
  3. Classification of the EEG patterns based on normal and pathological (schizophrenia) teaching sets.

Previous projects (main topics)

  • EEG assisted neurotropic drug design (new nootropic SEMAX - Government prize first category)
  • EEG-based automatic sleep staging and microstructure analysis
  • High precision EEG processing
  • Fundamentals and applications of Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI), with emphasis on:
    - two or three-dimensional EEG control of external moving objects
    - instrumental learning for skills acquisition in the BCI framework
    - unconscious mode of neurofeedback
