Developmental dynamics of cognitive functions across the lifespan
The main focus of this field of research is placed on investigating intra-individual change, learning and self-regulation processes at different levels of time.
In assessing the development of learning across the lifespan, processes of change at different time levels play a key role: ranging from short-term fluctuations of attention (seconds), learning processes (ranging from minutes to weeks) and school-related processes (years) to lifelong changes of cognitive resources. A research priority concerns processes of change and their link to these time levels and across these levels. Besides working on conceptual and method aspects, researchers are involved in conducting micro-genetic studies, diaries and ambulatory assessment designs.
