Die Forschungsprojekte der Fakultät Psychologie

  • Projekt «Schule von Morgen»
    Die Eigenschaften, die gute digitale Lehrmittel auszeichnen, wurde noch zu wenig untersucht. In diesem Projekt wird nach wissenschaftlich fundierten Lernprinzipien eine Web-Applikation zum Erwerb einer Zweitsprache entwickelt. Der Nutzen der Web-Applikation wird über mehrere Jahre wissenschaftlich überprüft.
  • Project «Numerical Cognition»
    Numbers are omnipresent in our society, and dealing with numbers (e.g. in a supermarket or at school) is a key cognitive competence that has a crucial impact on our socio-economic status and well-being. The aim of this project is to explore basic cognitive and neuronal aspects of numerical cognition.
  • Project «The role of motives on emotional processing»
    There is variance between persons regarding the incentives that activate our motivational system. The effect of individual differences in basic motives on attentional allocation to emotional stimuli remains controversial.
  • Project «What makes a Screencast successful?»
    Screencasts are useful eLearning-tools for distance learning. However, they are not always successful. Different aspects of screencast will be explored in this project, with a focus on cognitive and affective impacts on observers.
  • Project «When is the use of tablets useful?»
    Tablets and Smartphones are omnipresent in our society, and more and more schools have started to use tablets in classrooms. Considering perceptual and cognitive factors, it remains unclear for which tasks the user can really profit from the use of tablets.
  • Project «Links between brain activity (EEG) and cognitive capacities»
    In this project, we are first exploring the relations between brain activity, using EEG recordings, and memory in typically developing children, young and healthy aging older adults. Second, we are characterizing the EEG microstates that are present in individuals with Down syndrome (Trisomy 21 or T21) or Williams syndrome (WS).
  • Project «The impact of intermodal training on the cognitive capacities of individuals with handicaps»
    Numerous studies have tried to determine whether “cognitive” training leads to improvements in cognitive performance. This project aims to determine whether an intermodal and intensive training improves the cognitive capacities of individuals with cognitive handicaps.
  • Project «Profiles of spatial abilities in Down and Williams syndromes»
    Down syndrome (Trisomy 21 or T21) and Williams syndrome (WS) are genetic disorders characterized by mental retardation and impaired abilities to process visuospatial information. Nevertheless, the ability of individuals with Down syndrome or Williams syndrome to navigate in the real word have not been well studied. The goal of this study is to characterize this capacity in these individuals.
  • Project «EATMINT»
    How to improve emotional awareness, emotion sharing with peers and emotion regulation in computer-mediated collaboration? ​​​​
  • Project «EMOVIZ»
    How to support self-regulation and engagement in distance learning?
