Our research interests are concerned with learning, memory and attention processes in mental disorders and psychotherapy. For instance we investigate intrusive memories, fear conditioning and fear related motivated attention of patients with mental disorders compared to healthy controls, or compare effectiveness of pharmacological treatment and psychotherapy.


We strive to measure mental health related phenomena on multiple levels: on a behavioral level using questionnaires or reaction time assessment, on a subjective level using questionnaires or electronic diaries and on a physiological level using electrophysiological (EDA, startle, ERP), genetic or endocrinological methods.
