    Ph.D. students are very welcome to devise their own thesis topic. However, some possible thesis topics are listed here:

    1. Multinomial processing-tree models of implicit measures of social cognition with response-latency modeling (Advisors: Klauer, Erdfelder).
    2. Investigating the role of sufficiency and necessity in moral judgment (Advisors: Klauer, Hütter).
    3. Integration of response times in threshold models of recognition memory (Advisors: Erdfelder, Klauer).
    4. Conditions for controllable and uncontrollable learning in evaluative conditioning (Advisors: Hütter, Klauer).
    5. A life-span perspective on controllable and uncontrollable learning in evaluative conditioning (Advisors: Hütter, Klauer, Kuhlmann).
    6. Analysis of interpersonal, item-specific, and dynamic predictors of subliminal priming effects (Advisors: Kiesel, Klauer).
    7. Extending diffusion model analyses to more complex decision making (Advisors: Voss, Klauer).
    8. Separation of storage and retrieval in episodic memory (Advisors: Bröder, Erdfelder, Klauer).
    9. Item versus source forgetting rates (Advisors: Kuhlmann, Bröder, Klauer, Voss).
