Using digital tests for psychological research
SCHUHFRIED and science belong together. Our products are developed together with well-known experts and tested in empirical studies. We cooperate with universities, regularly hold talks at international congresses and publish in renowned journals. However, cooperation in the course of trend-setting studies is particularly close to our hearts.
That's why we have been supporting researchers for a long time with the help of digital tests - from students and young researchers to multicentre international studies. Through our research support, scientists can put forward their ideas for a study. SCHUHFRIED supports relevant studies with VTS digital psychological tests, CogniPlus cognitive training and years of expertise.
Current examples include:
- the study by Dr. Jordi Matias-Guiu of the San Carlos Clinic in Madrid on the topic of cognitive impairment as a result of COVID-19 disease
- the study by Dr. Ramona Schödel on the connection between smartphone use and the Big 5 personality factors, or
- the study by PD Dr. Jessica Peter on the influence of real-time fmRI neurofeedback training on the memory performance of persons with and without memory disorders.
Are you also planning a scientific paper in which you would like to use psychological assessments? Register for our research support and benefit from our experience!
By the way: Studies conducted with tests from the Vienna Test System or CogniPlus trainings can be submitted for the SCHUHFRIED Science Award. Last year, Dr. Ramona Schödel's study was one of three studies to be awarded 500€.
