Research focus

Experimentele Psychologie

Experimental psychopathology

How do people perceive their surroundings? Do people with anxiety disorders selectively attend to threatening information? We investigate this with the help of behavioral observations, eye tracking and the use of virtual reality.

Mental Health

Prevention and intervention

We investigate effects of psychological interventions in the context of prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of mental and somatic disorders.

Interpersoneller Schwerpunkt

Ressources and risks related to dyadic relationships

We are interested in principles that help to develop and maintain positive couple and parent-child relationships.
