Experimental Psychologists met in Gießen and discussed more applied subjects

From March, 31st to April 2nd 2014, experimental psychologists met in Gießen for the 56th "Tagung experimentell arbeitender Psychologen", called TeaP. This was the fourth time that the TeaP took place in Gießen, the last time ten years ago.

It was even the fifth time, if you also count the founding conference of the Gesellschaft für experimentelle Psychologie, in 1904, which has been organized by Müller, Sommer, Ebbinghaus, Exner, Külpe, Meumann & Schumann. 110 years ago, 85 researchers gathered in Gießen and founded a society that later on became the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Psychologie. 110 years later, about 650 participants from 18 different countries came to Gießen.
There were 570 talks and posters that covered the whole field of experimental psychology. The programme represented basic subjects such as general psychology, developmental and social psychology, and neuroscience, but also more applied subjects such as sports and movement science, clinical psychology, traffic psychology and economy. It also covers most of the basic human processes, such as attention, perception, cognition, learning, memory and action.
