Project description:

This study examines the extent to which various physiological measures are linked to parameters of information processing and decision-making processes. For this purpose, the test subjects assess various true and false statements according to their truthfulness and indicate the subjective certainty of  judgment per trial. To answer the question, reaction time, eye movement pupil width, mimic reaction and skin conductivity are evaluated.
