From brain function to social interaction
The mission of SIE is to increase our understanding of ICT-mediated social interaction. Our studies focus on: (a) emotional and cognitive processes during mediated social interaction, including mediated touch, interaction with virtual humans, and knowledge work, (b) the neuroscience of social ICT, (c) socially-mediated behavioral phenomena in SNSs, (d) the use of gamification to support the adoption of healthier lifestyles, and (e) user experience of ICT.
We use a wide methodological approach, from surveys and qualitative methods to neurophysiological recordings (e.g., EEG), to study users in the laboratory as well as in real-life contexts. By providing both fundamental and applied insight into social interaction, we help to create ICT and services that take the human social and emotional processes into account.
