‘I am interested in the psychological influences and effects of being connected online, particularly in social networks. I intend to explore how this changes us as humans beings – in terms of cognitive abilities, in our attitudes and our motivational and emotional perceptions.’
In numerous projects and publications, Professor Mayr has undertaken intensive research into cognitive processes and interactions between people and machines.
