Within learning and memory research, CCLM runs research projects on learning, long-term memory, working memory, associative, prospective and implicit memory, perception, personality, and individual differences in development. The following questions represent examples of such research projects:

  • Is it possible that humans remember daily events on an unconscious level?
  • What effect do age-related changes in vision have on driving capabilities?
  • Under what circumstances can future intentions, such as buying milk on the way home, be remembered?
  • Can working memory training improve intelligence in children?
  • How can consolidation processes, i.e., storing experiences, be expressed in a mathematical model that is generally true?
  • Which extraordinary characteristics in the brain can predict abnormalities such as Alzheimer's disease and could thus possibly shed light on intervention strategies?
