We study how social interactions shape human motivation, learning and behavior, and how they can be used as a tool for the diagnosis and therapy of psychological disorders, e.g., from the anxiety disorder spectrum. Our approach integrates neuroscience, social and experimental psychology, and behavioral economics. We use a range of methods including brain imaging, computational modeling, and behavioral experiments.

We are located at the University Clinic of Wuerzburg, Germany. Our work is funded by the German Research Foundation. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested to in getting involved with our research (on the master, PhD or Postdoc level).
