Scientific Computing in Social and Behavioral Sciences and Economics

Coordinator of the Research Area:
Dr. Christian Kirches

Several innovative projects have been triggered in the area of research of Computational Social and Behavioural Sciences and Economics. A Hengstberger-Prize was awarded to the team Dürsch/Holt/Kir­ches to organize an Int. Hengstberger Symposium on “(Non-)Optimal human decision making in dynamic environments” (02.-04. 03. 2015). The list of twinning projects in the sub-domain of Computational Social and Behavioural Sciences is given below:

Modelling of higher cognition in schizophrenia (Holt/Kirches/Körkel)

PsychoGeoinformatics (Zipf/Meyer-Lindenberg)

Visual attention as a window to cognitive processing – A new method to analyze eye tracking data elicited from dynamic scenes (von Stutterheim/Garbe)
