Psychology in Tübingen has a strong scientific orientation in both research and teaching.
Cognitive psychology is the common link for all basic disciplines and based on a broad methodological approach.
Research in the basic disciplines focuses on perception, language, executive functions, numerical cognition, and temporal cognition, as well as on social communication and interaction processes. The applied disciplines include clinical, organizational, school, and applied cognitive psychology. The numerous research activities of the working groups are embedded in an interdisciplinary environment, for example in the Research Unit 2718.
