Research Training Group (RTG) 2386 “Extrospection. External access to higher cognitive processes”

The DFG Research Training Group 2386 “Extrospection. External access to higher cognitive processes” consists of 10 different research topics. Each topic aims to contribute to our overall research focus on “Extrospection”, i.e., third-person access to higher cognitive processes resp. third-person access to first-person conscious experience.

Below, please find the list of research topics and the participating principal investigator (PI) responsible for each topic. The PI listed will be the main thesis supervisor for this topic.
