Welcome

to the homepage of the Cognitive Psychology Lab at the University of Koblenz-Landau, headed by Prof. Benjamin E. Hilbig. We are part of the Department of Psychology (Campus Landau) and one of its six main labs/units. In our research, we are concerned with all aspects of human cognition with a special emphasis on judgment and decision making, learning, and formal modeling. In addition, we are interested in aspects of cognition relating to social behavior as well as individual differences and personality. In the B.Sc. and M.Sc. psychology programs of the Department of Psychology at Landau Campus we primarily teach cognitive and experimental psychology as well as motivation, learning, and emotion.
