Welcome to Sport Psychology

Welcome to the Chair of Sport Psychology. In our research we focus on motivational and volitional aspects of sports and exercise. These are also the main contents of our teaching. If you are interested in our work, please feel free to look around! 

The Sport Psychology Lab

The Sport Psychology Lab is equipped with methods and technologies from psychology, neuroscience, and physiology. This allows us to address our research questions from multiple angles. If you want to learn more about our lab, then please click on the picture on the left.


We believe that motivational and volitional processes are the key to understand athletic performance and exercise behavior. We use an interdisciplinary, multi-methods approach to better understand how these psychological  processes are associated with sports behavior.
