Torsten Martiny-Hünger


Associate Professor

Job description

My research is concerned with cognitive, affective, and behavioral control. I approach this topic from different perspectives like social psychological approaches to self-regulation, cognitively oriented research on the relationship between verbal plans/instructions and behavioral responses, and from a decision-making perspective.
