Cognitive Biopsychology and Methods

The team of Prof. Björn Rasch is happy to welcome you!

Our main theme is sleep and that from a psychological viewpoint. How do our thoughts, ideas and emotions effect our sleep? How can we explain their influence? How does sleep improve our memory? How can we use these insights in our everyday life?

If you are interested in answers to these questions, you are welcome to participate in a study in our sleep laboratory, or take a look at our Research themes and Media communications.

Please note that we are not a medical sleep laboratory. Please contact the sleep center in the Cantonal Hospital if you need help with a sleep problem.
