Researching, together with us

Would you like to participate in our studies on cognitive abilities and brain activity at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences?


As an ambassador for science, you can help us decipher the basic mechanisms of human thought, or, gain deeper insight into the neural basis of higher brain functions such as language, memory, orientation, music, or communication.

If you would like to register yourself or your child as a study participant, please fill out the registration form at the bottom of the page and we will contact you as soon as we have a study that suits you. You can also register for one of the current ongoing studies. On the pages "Studies for adults" and "Studies for children" you can see which studies are currently being conducted at the Institute. In this case, please get in touch directly with the contact persons listed in the study application.

There is no obligation to participate if you register. You're also welcome to take a look at our data protection information and FAQ.

We look forward to welcoming you and your enthusiasm for science!

Your team at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences.
