Overarching Topics for Bachelor and Master Theses:

  • Der Blick in die Zukunft: Antizipative Blickbewegungen erlauben Rückschlüsse auf Mechanismen der zielgerichteten Handlungskontrolle
  • Wie bilden wir Stimulus-Response Assoziationen ohne zu handeln?                                                       
  • Visualisiertes Verständnis: Gezielte Aufmerksamkeitslenkung zur Unterstützung der Interpretation von Diagrammen im Physikunterricht
  • Das kannst du vergessen! Welche kognitiven Mechanismen helfen uns inzidentell erlernte Informationen intentional zu vergessen?

 

Research Internships:

Research internships typically focus on one topic (see bachelor and master thesis topics for some options) and you follow the development of one or more experiments from planning through programming, data collection, and analysis to the interpretation of results. Different foci (e.g. programming/analyzing) are possible based on project requirements and personal interests. Please include details on your learning goals and motivation in your application.

Currently, we are only allowed to accept students of the University of Freiburg for research internships due to regulations related to the Corona crisis. Partial and full online internships are possible.
