Research Group Self-Regulation and Health

Control and flexibility: investigating self-regulation


Self-regulation failures are central to most health problems that plague individuals in modern societies, for example obesity, eating disorders, and depression.

Embodiment of cognition and emotion


Body and mind interaction in mental disorders

Why do people act contrary to their intentions or feel out of control? Where is the right balance between control and relaxation? What factors determine the ability to inhibit impulses, make decisions and control emotions? What goes wrong in body and mind interaction in mental and physical disorders? We investigate central psychological processes in health and disease.
