Zusammenfassung Auch gesundes Altern geht nicht ohne kognitive Defizite einher. Bei Betrachtung des aktuellen Erkenntnisstands zu kognitiven Veränderungen im gesunden Alterungsprozess stellt sich eine dysfunktionale kognitive Kontrolle als ein Kerndefizit heraus. Moderne Präventionsansätze verfolgen das Ziel, den im gesunden Alterungsprozess vermut...

Zusammenfassung In Deutschland und vielen anderen Ländern ist die Altersgruppe der über 65-Jährigen gemessen am Anteil dieser Gruppe an der Gesamtbevölkerung übermäßig in Suizidstatistiken vertreten. Als Risikofaktoren gelten das Vorliegen von sozialen Stressoren, körperlichen und psychischen Beeinträchtigungen, eingeschränkter Funktion sowie ungün...
Article
We investigated theory of mind (ToM) deficits in Alzheimer‘s disease (AD) and its possible connection to autobiographical memory (ABM). Patients and matched controls were evaluated and compared using a video-based ToM test, an autobiographical fluency task, and a neuropsychological test battery. We found that ToM deficits were positively associated...

Zusammenfassung. Die Popularitat des Resilienzbegriffes in der Forschung und Praxis begunstigt, dass dieser Begriff uneinheitlich verwendet wird. Dabei wird in der Regel das Ergebnis einer gesunden Entwicklung trotz widriger Umstande mit den zugrunde liegenden Mechanismen und Prozessen der Gesunderhaltung konfundiert. Ausgehend von einem Verstandni...
Article
INTRODUCTION: The generalized anxiety disorder has a prevalence of about 2% among children and adolescents, age of onset is at about 8.5 years. Considering the societal burden of psychiatric disorders, early interventions for individuals at risk and targeted interventions are reasonable. In order to provide necessary information for prevention and...
Article
INTRODUCTION: Mental health problems in parents represent a well-established risk factor for a wide variety of maladaptive cognitive, psychosocial, and behavioral outcomes in their children. More than half of these children develop psychiatric disorders in childhood or adolescence constituting a risk for psychiatric disorders being two to three tim...

Zusammenfassung. Die generalisierte Angststorung bei Kindern und Jugendlichen weist eine Pravalenz von 2 % und ein Erstmanifestationsalter von 8.5 Jahren auf. Anhand der Daten der BELLA-Kohortenstudie wurden Einflusse ausgewahlter Risiko- und Schutzfaktoren auf das Auftreten und die Entwicklung von Symptomen generalisierter Angststorung (generalisi...
Article
Zusammenfassung. Kinder psychisch belasteter Eltern bilden eine Hochrisikogruppe fur die Entwicklung psychischer Auffalligkeiten und weisen im Vergleich zur Gesamtbevolkerung eine geringere gesundheitsbezogene Lebensqualitat auf. Fur die Entwicklung spezifischer praventiver und therapeutischer Unterstutzungsprogramme wurden veranderungssensitive Fa...
Article
Individuals with psychopathic tendencies show impairments in social and emotional behavior, such as cold-heartedness and lack of emotion. The present study compares the cognitive and affective theory of mind (ToM) abilities of male psychopathic offenders (n = 24) with those of a nonclinical control group (n = 24). No significant group differences h...

Empathy is defined as an individually varying but stable personality trait. Contrary to this statement we proposed a model (Georgi, Petermann & Schipper, 2014) in which individual empathic abilities are continuously modulated throughout life, resulting in modifications of neural processes and their underlying neural structures. To further investiga...

Declines in cognitive abilities are part of normal aging. But are these declines present in socio-emotional abilities like empathy, too? Due to the lack of studies comparing empathy between elderly and young adults we conducted such a comparison. As compared to young adults the elderly score higher in cognitive empathy.

In any interpersonal relationship trust and empathy represent important components. We conducted a cross-cultural comparative study aiming to investigate how these components are connected and whether they differ between cultures (Europe/Asia), taking into account personality traits. Especially the correlation of trust and empathy with personality...

Conference Paper

Empathy is considered to be a rather stable character trait. Questioning this notion we propose a model in which empathic abilities are modulated via continuous socio-emotional stimulation, potentially leading to learning effects. We present two completed studies aiming to investigate different assumptions of the model.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Neuroscientific issues like neural correlates of psychopathology or psychotherapeutic influences on neural functioning represent a pillar of modern clinical psychological education. We propose a neuropsychology module adapted to clinical psychological needs, easily being integrated into existing curricula and already implemented and positively eval...
Article
Empathy is defined as an individually varying but stable personality trait. To our knowledge this notion seems questionable considering recent studies proving neuronal plasticity not only in childhood and adolescence but over the whole lifespan. We propose a model in which an individual's basic empathic abilities-arising from genetic factors, brain...
Article
Emotionsdysregulation wird im Kontext von Angststörungen und aggressivem Verhalten im Kindesalter erläutert; desweiteren werden entsprechende Hinweise auf die Autismus-Spektrum-Störungen gegeben. Verschiedene dysfunktionale Regulationsstrategien werden identifiziert. Neben der generellen Betrachtung von Emotionsdysregulation im Kontext der genannte...

Emotion regulation is a crucial skill in adulthood; its acquisition represents one of the key developmental tasks in early childhood. Difficulties with adaptive emotion regulation increase the risk of psychopathology in childhood and adulthood. This is, for instance, shown by a relation between emotion regulation and aggressive behavior in childhoo...

Zusammenfassung. Die Epigenetik, die sich mit der Bedeutung der Gene im Kontext der menschlichen Entwicklung beschäftigt, konnte zeigen, dass genetische Wirkungen auf die Entwicklung immer auf einer Wechselwirkung zwischen Genom und Umwelt basieren. Die Annahme, der genetische Einfluss auf die (psychische) Entwicklung sei konstant und nur durch gen...

The term trust has its roots in psychology and the social sciences, it stands for a complex construct having a high relevance in certain domains, ranging from everyday-live issues over sociology and medicine to economics, law and politics. To a certain extend it plays a crucial role in all social interactions, displaying its enormous societal relev...

Contour integration is a fundamental process for visual scene segmentation and object recognition. Consequently, human observers are very efficient in detecting configurations of aligned edge elements in a background of randomly oriented distracters. Neural signatures of contour integration processes have been found in electrophysiological recordin...
Article
Shape perception in natural scenes relies on integration processes which construct a representation from local image features. An example is contour integration, grouping nearly collinear aligned edge elements into coherent forms. At the same time, perception is strongly modulated by the global form or context of a shape. A prominent example is the...
Article
Explanations for the attentional blink (AB; a deficit in identifying the second of two targets when presented 200-500 ms after the first) have recently shifted from limitations in memory consolidation to disruptions in cognitive control. With a new model based on the threaded cognition theory of multi-tasking we propose a different explanation: the...
