Brain and Cognition

Brain and Cognition

Program coordinator: Prof. Dr. Rolf A. Zwaan

The Brain and Cognition area investigates cognitive and emotional processes, often also in relation to their neural substrates. Examples of cognitive and emotional processes that are studied in the Brain and Cognition area are language comprehension, memory, perception, motor processes, and fear. These processes are not only investigated in the lab, with a variety of experimental methods, but also in a broader societal context, such as the social media with text-mining technology. Several members of the Brain and Cognition area are also active in the domain of meta-science, where they study the reproducibility of psychological research, often in the context of large-scale replication projects.
