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.
