How important is cognitive psychology
Cognitive psychology explores the fundamentals of various mental abilities such as imagination, attention, perception, learning, memory, reasoning, and problem solving. This also includes emotional and motor factors. Cognitive psychology is in interdisciplinary exchange, especially with computer and neurosciences, and makes important contributions to other research fields (e.g. ergonomics, didactics).
Our research is experimental and the department has a versatile laboratory infrastructure. This includes devices for gaze registration, a three-dimensional motion simulator and a laboratory for generating virtual realities. Current research topics include visual and motor imagination, identification with avatars or immersion in virtual realities, perceptual learning, implicit sequence learning, prospective and retrospective memory as well as elementary visual perception research and visual-vestibular interaction. Our research is regularly supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation and is involved in several international collaborations.
The department is also responsible for basic statistical training and experimental exercises. New and advanced research methods are regularly offered at the master’s level. A methodologically sound training is just as important for professional qualifications as a well-developed feeling for interesting application possibilities. At the master’s level, teaching assignments are regularly held by practically active psychologists. The training objective of the “Cognitive Psychology, Perception and Methodology” department is psychologists who have solid methodological knowledge and who can apply it flexibly to a variety of psychological issues.
