Neurointerfaces and neurotechnologies

Date /

The first lesson will be held on October 14, 2022.

Lectures will be held in rooms 12-25 of the Main Building of Moscow State University on Fridays from 16:45 to 18:20.

Lecturer: Mikhail Albertovich Lebedev,

Professor of the Department of Mathematical Analysis of the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of Moscow State University, PhD.

The aim of the course is to give participants a basic understanding of the functions of the nervous system and how neural interfaces can reproduce and restore these functions. Methods of recording neuronal activity and neurostimulation, algorithms for decoding noninvasively and invasively collected signals, peripheral devices connecting to the nervous system based on real applied problems will be analyzed in detail.

Students of the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, Physics, Biology, Faculty of Fundamental Medicine, as well as anyone interested in the problems of neurotechnology are invited.


1. Brain, consciousness and neurointerfaces.

2. Anatomy and functions of the brain: how to apply neurotechnology.

3. Motor system and neurointerfaces for restoring movements.

4. Neurostimulation of various levels of the nervous system.

5. Somatosensory system: opportunities for tactile and proprioceptive neurotechnologies.

6. The structure and functions of the eye; opportunities for neurotechnology.

7. Neural interfaces for restoring vision and hearing.

8. Neurointerfaces for cognitive functions and psychiatry.
