Biological and Social Psychology: Anna K. Kuhlen


Welcome to our group Biological and Social Psychology!

As humans we have the basic need to connect with each other, to share our ideas and feelings. Language is the central instrument to meet this need. Yet successful social interactions require that the human brain masters not only the production and comprehension of speech. Additional demands are placed on our cognitive system that engage processes enabling social cognition, interpersonal coordination, and multimodal sensory integration. How do our brains accomplish this task? And how can technological advancements promote social interactions between humans, and between humans and machines?

Our research team applies behavioral and electrophysiological (EEG) techniques to investigate research questions at the intersection between social neuroscience, psycholinguistics, and social psychology.
