Our research addresses basic topics in cognitive psychology such as

  • attention (especially in the acoustic modality),
  • working memory (especially its disruption by noise),
  • sound source localization,
  • long-term memory (especially its evolutionary adaptability, changes over the life span and eyewitness identifications in lineups), and
  • social interactions (cooperation and punishment)

as well as applied topics such as

  • moral dilemmas in autonomous driving,
  • readability of text on computer screens,
  • color perception under artificial light,
  • distance perception in driving,
  • driver fatigue,
  • perception of poorly visible objects depending on the design of the instrument panel, and
  • the roles of attention and memory in advertising.
