Our group carries out research in the field of cognitive psychology – in particular in the areas of memory, mental imagery, and perception. The research is mainly experimental and quantitative. We collect eye data and conduct experiments in virtual reality.
Our research addresses questions such as: How does the internal world differ from the external and in what respect are they similar? Why do we look to specific blank spaces when retrieving something? What are the criteria that we take into account when we differentiate between fantasy and reality?
We work with innovative experimental and statistical methods and carry out projects in developmental psychology. We are particularly interested in how children differentiate between reality and fantasy, and how children learn from fictional sources. We are also investigating the impact of new media on learning success.
Our group teaching is in the field of “research methods and statistics“
