Molecular Psychology

The Department of Molecular Psychology investigates the molecular (genetic) basis of individual differences in human behavior. Classic twin studies revealed that individual differences in personality traits such as being anxious can be accounted for about 50% to genetics. Due to the rapid progress in the neurosciences, it is now possible to pinpoint the areas of the human genome linked to individual differences in psychological traits. Aside from applying molecular genetic techniques in their research, both MRI technologies as well as methods from Psychoinformatics are included in the research of Molecular Psychology.
