The group’s focus areas in research and teaching lie in the intersection of sports and movement sciences, psychology and neurosciences. This encompasses topics, such as: 

  • Interrelationship of age-related and experience-dependent changes in cognitive and motor functioning
  • „Joint action“: interaction of cognitive and motor processes during interpersonal coordination  
  • „Motor decision making“: Interplay of cognitive and motor processes in action planning and control
  • Interdisciplinary developmental embodiment research
  • Influence of physical activity and sports on physical and cognitive health
