The Social Cognition Center Cologne (SoCCCo) provides a dynamic research environment for the psychological study of human social behavior. Our goal is to better understand how people think about, judge, and behave towards others by examining the cognitive processes that underlie these endeavors. SoCCCo brings together five research groups at the University of Cologne that study a broad array of topics in social cognition, ranging from the dynamics of self-control to the ubiquity of social comparison and the intricacies of processing valenced information. The Center is supported by the DFG via the excellence initiative as well as the Leibniz, Emmy Noether and regular grant programs.
