Ulman Lindenberger

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ulman Lindenberger (born February 8, 1961 in Heidelberg ) is a German psychologist in the field of developmental psychology and cognitive aging research .

After graduating from high school in 1979 at the Arndt Gymnasium in Dahlem , Lindenberger studied from 1980 to 1981 at the University of California, Berkeley . From 1982 to 1985 he studied psychology at the Technical University of Berlin , from 1986 to 1994 biology at the Free University of Berlin , in 1990 he was awarded a Dr. phil. in psychology with Paul B. Baltes at the Free University of Berlin, the habilitation in psychology took place in 1998 also at the Free University of Berlin. 1999–2003 he was a professor at Saarland University . Ulman Lindenberger has been Director of the Developmental Psychology Research Department at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin since 2003 . Since 2004 he has been honorary professor at the Free University of Berlin and the Humboldt University of Berlin . Since 2014 he has headed the Max Planck UCL Center for Computational Psychiatry and Aging Research together with Ray Dolan , Director of the Wellcome Trust Center for Neuroimaging at University College London . 2015–2016 he was Fernand Braudel Senior Fellow at the European University Institute , Fiesole, Italy.

Lindenberger's research area is the psychology of the life span. He is particularly interested in the neural and behavioral plasticity of the lifespan, relationships between behavior and the brain over the lifespan, multivariate methods of development research and formal models of behavioral development. His work is primarily about the potential and limits of cognitive aging. Lindenberger combines approaches from neuroscience , gerontology and developmental psychology . Lindenberger's research shows that mental performance (or cognition ) is not determined by age, but can be improved through personal action.

For this he received the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize of the DFG in 2010 . In 2006 he was elected a member of the Leopoldina , in 2014 he became a member of the Academia Europaea .

Lindenberger is married and has two children.
