Cognitive, cortical and computational correlates of belief revision in spatial reasoning
Humans and artificial agents frequently must change their existing beliefs about the way how objects are arranged in space, in order to take into account a new piece of spatial information. So, how do humans revise their beliefs if a new piece of spatial information is inconsistent with earlier assumptions? When do they hold on to a belief and when do they change their mind? What are the neural correlates of belief revision in human spatial reasoning?

Everyday reasoning and conditionals
We use conditionals in many moments of our lives: to describe causalities, to tell people what to do, and even in law we use conditionals. In classical logic there are clear rules on how conditionals should be interpreted and understood. But how do we understand and reason with conditionals in our daily lives? How do our prior knowledge, emotions, preferences, and beliefs affect our reasoning? Do we take into account how conditionals are phrased?

Neuro-cognitive mechanisms and computational modelling of spatial belief revision
In order to integrate new spatial information, intelligent agents have to revise what they belief about the arrangements of objects or about the way objects are arranged in a room. Starting point of the project is the assumption that spatial beliefs result from construction and inspection of mental models. Mental models are cognitive representations of information given in spatial descriptions.

New Frameworks of Rationality
The goal of the priority program ―New Frameworks of Rationality‖ (SPP 1516) is to overcome the long lasting lack of collaboration between psychologists and philosophers (and other disciplines, such as AI) in order to develop a new theoretical framework of human rationality. To reach this goal, the SPP seeks to answer new questions that go beyond the limitations of 20th century research on rationality.

Space, Time and Mediality
The mediatization of space and time evolves in new ways in the “new media”, primary in computer games and the internet, but also, e.g., in films. The effects of mediatization are in philosophy as well as in media sciences noticeable.

Exclusion is a widespread thread to many people in the European Union, e.g. for migrants, youth, disabled people, and other groups. Inclusion can be achieved by increasing peoples’ multi-literacy skills; at least this is a hypothesis by the New London Group and their work about multi-literacy.

Cognitive and neural correlates of navigation in virtual environments (SQUARELAND)
This research project focuses on wayfinding and navigation in unknown, familiar, real, and virtual environments. It is based on the fundamental question how spatial information are acquired, stored and represented in memory, how they are revised and used in certain cognitive processes

New Framework of Rationality
The idea that humans are "rational creatures" has begun to totter over the past few years. It is not the case that humans fail at solving problems (in everyday life and in the psychological lab). Quite to the contrary: the capacity to solve the most complicated problems and to reason about the most complex states of affairs is compelling - otherwise, human mankind would not have become what it is today.
