Thesis Offers

We have multiple topics and projects for thesises. Below you can see the current list of projects for the upcoming winter semester 2021/22 (last updated 08.21).

Topic B.Sc. / M.Sc. Contact

Sensory attenuation

It is well known that self-produced stimuli are attenuated compared to externally produced stimuli. Within the thesis the underlying cognitive processes will be investigated further.

B.Sc. / M.Sc. Clara Fritz

Why can't we tickle ourselves? 

A self-generated contact is weakened in comparison to an externally generated contact. Within the thesis delayed contacts are investigated in the context of this effect.

B.Sc. / M.Sc. Clara Fritz

Intentional Binding

The study investigates subjective time compression effects resulting from voluntary actions, an effect called Intentional Binding.

B.Sc. / M.Sc. Michael Wiesing

Explicit and implicit learning in temporal adaptation

If the computer mouse is moving oddly slow, we can overcome this artificial delay by adapting our behavior – to a certain degree to our knowledge (explicit adaptation), and to a certain extend unconsciously (implicit adaptation). In this study we want to test which of these two processes acts when, and in how far they alter subsequent behavior or even perception.

B.Sc. / M.Sc. Nadine Schlichting

Perception during head movements

The execution of saccades leads to suppression effects on perception in specific time windows. This VR study investigates the suppression effect for head movements by utilizing head and eye tracking.
