Sport and Exercise Psychology

Description in 3 to 5 sentences. Our mission is to undertake rigorous scientific research in order to better understand the influence of psychological factors on human behaviour and sport performance and the influence of exercise participation on psychological factors like mental health and well-being.

We are researching in an interdisciplinary area combining knowledge from sport science, psychology, sociology and pedagogy working with different populations ranging from children, adults with mental health disorders to elite athletes to gain more knowledge about questions like:

Neurophysiology

Research into movement variability and into the coordinative structure of movement patterns has gained momentum in recent years as the significance of these aspects of human movement for important functional characteristics, such as motor learning, balance and stability, situation adaptability, or coping with pathologies become more and more apparent.

Our research group investigates sensorimotor integration. We analyse movement variability; the coordinative structure of movement patterns (PCA; “principal movements”); how muscles are activated and how muscle activation is coordinated between muscles (EMG, muscle synergies); and we monitor brain activity (EEG) to link phenomena in the EEG with aspects of movement control.
