"Neurocommunikative technology: Achievements and Prospects" Lecture (2 hours)

"Neurocomputing interface" Workshop (3 hours)

The prospects of the brain in the postindustrial world Roundtable (2 hours)

In lecture will be presented the basic theoretical background of creating technologies of neurocommunication and examples of their practical applications. In addition to the lectures the limits of technology and the adaptive capabilities of the brain included in the contours of the direct control and neurocommunication  in the way of analysis and interpretation of the electroencephalogram will be discussed.  At practical training, the opportunity to experience the efficiency of neurocomputer communication, for example, in the technology of typing or device management by focusing attention on external objects orinternally will be given to the students.The round table will be devoted to discussion of the brain to adapt to the digital world technology with a nintensive flow of information, and its multimodal network structure.
