Across 22 projects, the CRC 1528 “Cognition of Interaction” investigates how fundamental cognitive functions and their neurobiological foundations contribute to human and nonhuman primate social behaviour and social interactions. The CRC is formed by a highly interdisciplinary consortium including systems and computational neuroscientists, data scientists, psychologists, and behavioural and cognitive biologists. See:
The project Dissociating impacts of social, emotional, and motivational relevancies on perception and cognition”, led by Prof. Dr. Anne Schacht, aims at a functional and temporal segregation of effects of the three different relevancies by developing paradigms with orthogonal variations of relevance dimensions and means of event-related brain potentials.
