Meine Forschungsinteressen beinhalten die Untersuchung des Zusammenspiels von automatischen und kontrollierten Prozessen in verschiedenen Bereichen der menschlichen Informationsverarbeitung:

  • Prospektives Gedächtnis (die Fähigkeit, eine Absicht zu formulieren, zu behalten und wie geplant auszuführen)
  • Implizites Lernen von Regelhaftigkeiten
  • Kognitive Kontrolle insbesondere in ambiguen Situationen (z.B. beim Aufgabenwechseln)
  • Auswirkung von Synästhesie auf verschiedene kognitive Leistungen (Synästhesie ist eine relativ seltene Variation des Erlebens, bei der bestimmte Reize – z.B. Buchstaben oder Zahlen -- ein zusätzliches Erlebnis -- z.B. Farbe -- auslösen

Was ist Synästhesie?

Synästhesie ist ein Phänomen ausserordentlicher sensorischer Erlebnisse, bei welchem Sinneseindrücke Hirnareale aktivieren, welche normalerweise nicht von diesen Sinneseindrücken aktiviert werden. Resultat ist ein zusätzliches Sinneserlebnis. Synästhesie ist ein sehr heterogenes Phänomen, bei dem verschiedene Wahrnehmungen die verschiedensten Erlebnisse induzieren können. Bei der Graphem-Farb und der Phonem-Farb Synästhesie löst der Buchstabe A beispielsweise ein rotes Farberleben aus. Die Graphem-Farb Synästhesie ist zum heutigen Zeitpunkt die bestuntersuchte Synästhesieform. Bis jetzt liegen nur ungenaue Schätzungen vor, wie häufig unterschiedliche Formen von Synästhesie in der Bevölkerung vorkommen. Eines unserer Ziele ist es, eine präzisere Angabe über die Häufigkeit verschiedener Synästhesieformen in der Schweiz vornehmen zu können.

Diese Internetseite soll Ihnen die Möglichkeit geben sich über Synästhesie zu informieren und Sie einladen an unserer Forschung teilzunehmen.

Wenn Sie uns über Ihre Erlebnisse informieren möchten, klicken Sie um unseren Synästhesie-Check Fragebogen aufzurufen (Wir sind auch an Ihren Antworten interessiert, falls Sie keine synästhetischen Erlebnisse haben).
