New DFG research group on cognitive psychology

Speaker is LEAD member Barbara Kaup

LEAD member Barbara Kaup is the speaker of the new research group "Modal and Amodal Cognition: Functions and Interactions" funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The group investigates the function and interaction of different forms of representation. In doing so, the researchers combine two representational formats that have hitherto been considered separately, one that is close to speech (amodal) and one that is not (modal). The aim is to gain new insights into various areas of cognitive psychology - perception, action, language, thinking and learning - as well as into clinical and developmental psychology.
