Human Interaction Research Group

The Human Interaction Research Group investigates the behavioural, emotional, experimental and neurobehavioral changes taking place in participants during interpersonal situations. To investigate this, we collect data from participants in group and dyadic situations using a variety of methods. In addition to observing and analysing behaviour, we use questionnaires, interview methods and psychophysiological measures to study interpersonal interaction. In the 1980s, our laboratory was one of the first to extend the study of hypnosis to hypnotists and to investigate the effects of suggestive communication. Our results include theoretical innovations and a number of methodological developments in the field of interpersonal interaction research. In addition to laboratory projects, we also conduct clinical research in the field of oncology, perinatal and intensive care.
We welcome all students who wish to participate in our work.
