The Faculty of Psychology, Higher School of Economics (HSE, Moscow) is
pleased to announce a number of post-doctoral and PhD student   positions

Perception, which is currently being established at HSE, Center for
Neuroeconomics and Cognitive Studies. This new international group will

control in communication, sensory-motor integration in cognitive functions,
embodied cognition, interactions between domain-specific and domain-general
cognitive systems, neurocognitive bases of language acquisition, studies of
communication deficits (e.g. aphasia) etc.
