For several years our university has been actively developing a new branch of economics – «IT in medicine». Samara State Medical University houses the Federal Center for breakthrough research. Today SSMU Clinics are ready for the approbation of innovative technologies in rehabilitation created by Russian and foreign specialists.
In October 2016 SSMU held the II International Conference «Brain-computer Interface: Science and Practice». The leading scientists discussed the latest progress in both fundamental neuroscience and applied studies dealing with the questions of decoding of electrical activity of the brain, application of BCI and virtual reality in medical and social rehabilitation, and development of neural networks. Among the participants of the conference there were famous researchers from the USA, Germany, and Hong Kong. Scientific achievements and innovative technologies in the sphere of neurosciences were presented by recognized Russian academies.
