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 various aspects of human cognition and behavior spanning cognitive and experimental psychology (especially judgment & decision making and memory), personality (especially models of personality structure and "dark" traits, cf. darkfactor.org), social psychology and behavioral economics (prosociality, social and ethical dilemmas), and psychological methods and assessment (e.g., socially desirable responding, web-based research). Methodologically, we share an experimental/behavioral approach and an interest in statistical modeling. Finally, we develop tools and software for other researchers to use, most notably the lab.js Software for building web-based experiments.
In the B.Sc. and M.Sc. psychology programs of the Department of Psychology at Landau Campus we cover all areas of cognitive and experimental psychology (learning, memory, perception, attention, motivation, emotion, thinking, judgment & decision making, language), and we offer several lab courses and innovative master level courses on programming and conducting independent research.
