Welcome to the Neurocognitive Intrefaces Group at Moscow MEG Center, Moscow State University of Psychology and Education!

We study human physiology and cognition in human-machine interaction, especially in interaction via brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) and in gaze-based interaction. We also develop advanced non-invasive BCIs, including the highly integrated “eye-brain-computer interfaces” (EBCIs).

Research areas

Advanced/hybrid EEG/MEG BCIs

Gaze interaction


Intention, action, agency, consciousness
