Ph.D. students are very welcome to devise their own thesis topic. However, some possible thesis topics are listed here:
(1) Integration of response times in threshold models of recognition memory (Advisors: Erdfelder, Klauer).
(2)The sleep benefit in episodic memory: Does sleep improve maintenance in memory, retrieval from memory, or both? (Advisors: Erdfelder, Ulrich, Kuhlmann).
(3) Separation of storage and retrieval in episodic memory (Advisors: Bröder, Erdfelder, Klauer).
(4) Multinomial processing-tree models of implicit measures of social cognition with response-latency modeling (Advisors: Klauer, Erdfelder).
(5) Identification and separation of decision making processes (Advisors: Hilbig, Bröder, Erdfelder).
