Biological psychology is concerned with the biological basis of behavior and experience. Within the Biological Psychology Group in Tübingen, we investigate the brain processes that underlie cognitive, social and affective processes and their mental representations. Research questions focus on the areas of language processing and action planning. For example, we examine the question of why we do not notice certain linguistic statements as incorrect, such as in the sentence: "How many animals of each species did Moses take with him on the ark?". To investigate the processes in these areas, we pursue an integrative experimental approach that combines behavioral and neurobiological measurements with the inclusion of biologically plausible computational models.
