Social Cognition and Decision Sciences

Social Cognition and Decision Sciences

The focus of our workgroup is on social cognition and decision research. We deal with the cognitive processes that in particular underlie the acquisition, change, and retrieval of attitudes, the formation of judgments in different areas, as well as the use of the so-called wisdom of the crowds. All research topics follow a connecting ecological perspective on psychological phenomena. That is, we examine how the context affects cognitive processes in learning, judgment, and decision making.

If you would like to know more about our work, you can attend our seminars and lectures, visit our weekly colloquium (SS 19), or experience our research directly as a participant in the lab! News from our team can be found under News.
