Research Methods and Cognitive Psychology


... to the homepage of the work group "Research Methods and Cognitive Psychology" at the department of psychology of the University Bremen. This homepage is currently under construction and will be successively updated and filled with information. Our team will be expanding in the next couple of months so their homepage will also be updated accordingly. 

Much of our research deals with human action control and psychomotor, also in the context of multitasking - so if several tasks have to be processed simultaneously. In addition, we deal with the processing of presuppositions in linguistic usage as well as memory psychology questions. These fundamental scientific interests are rounded off by the transfer into the field of human factors and the processing of issues in the field of applied statistics. More about these topics can be found here or for reading in corresponding publications click here.

In teaching, the work group is responsible for student education in the areas of psychological research methods and statistics.
