Mercator Research Groups
The first Mercator Research Group "Structure of Memory" (MRG 1) started work in January 2010 and focuses on research in the Neurosciences. Composed of experimental and theoretical neuroscientists as well as philosophers, the team investigates episodic and semantic memory processes and their relation to other cognitive functions. MRG 1 is made up of three research sectors which perform interdisciplinary work.
The second Mercator Research Group “Spaces of Anthropological Knowledge – Production and Transfer” (MRG 2), examines forms of production and circulation of human knowledge within their respective cultural and historical context. Under the umbrella of this project, research in the fields of knowledge history, philosophy, literary studies, media studies, and cultural psychology is carried out.
