In our science, we are exploring human thoughts, emotions and behaviors in individuals as well as in groups and in society. We are focusing on cognitive structures, processes, and their biological and neurological foundation. The human being and its development over the lifespan, stands in the middle of all our investigations.

We aspire to enrich the knowledge about healthy and resilient states, and likewise about various conditions. Our mission is to improve human living conditions by establishing better working environments and improving educational processes, general well-being, somatic and mental health.

To achieve these goals, we commit ourselves to a strict scientific evidence-based approach, utilizing the latest technological, methodological and statistical advances. Good scientific practice and ethical considerations build the solid ground of our research endeavor.

Research activities and publications of the institute are available in the FreiDok plus  repositiry of the university.
