Max Planck Insti­tute for Human Deve­lop­ment - Cent­ral IT

The Max Planck Insti­tute for Human Devel­op­ment is ded­ic­ated to the study of human devel­op­ment and edu­ca­tion, as well as human-machine inter­ac­tion. Research­ers of vari­ous dis­cip­lines – includ­ing psy­cho­logy, edu­ca­tion, soci­ology, medi­cine, his­tory, eco­nom­ics, com­puter sci­ence, and math­em­at­ics – work together on inter­dis­cip­lin­ary pro­jects at the Ber­lin Insti­tute. The research ques­tions they exam­ine include how people make effect­ive decisions even under time pres­sure and inform­a­tion over­load, how the inter­ac­tion between beha­viour and brain func­tion changes over the lifespan, as well as how human emo­tions change in a his­tor­ical con­text and how they have affected the course of his­tory itself and what social innov­a­tions and chal­lenges come with digit­al­iz­a­tion.
