Research topics

The Health Psychology section is currently interested in four lines of research:

  1. Psychophysiology of psychosocial resources (e.g., self-efficacy, social interactions and social support, positive affect)
  2. Psychophysiology of stress, burnout, anxiety, and coping
  3. Psychosocial consequences and antecedents of physical activity
  4. Personality, emotion, and health

Our research is characterized by the parallel recording of subjective, behavioral, and physiological variables, thus following a biopsychosocial approach. With respect to the physiological variables we are particularly interested in variables of the autonomic and neuroendocrine systems. Moreover, we have a strong focus on ambulatory assessment aiming to assess physiological, behavioral, and subjective variables outside the laboratory in everyday life by means of ambulatory assessment.
