Prof. Dr. Karl Christoph Klauer (42), Social and Cognitive Psychology, University of Bonn (1.55 million euros)
In awarding the prize to Karl Christoph Klauer, the DFG has distinguished a psychologist who developed new techniques and methods for performing tests, capturing data and carrying out analyses in various research areas. His integrative approach was most clearly illustrated by his work on propositional conclusions. This involves the so-called "response bias" which comes into play when people draw conclusions. This means that people are more prepared to accept a false argument if the end result corresponds with their ideas and that they will often regard a completely correct argument as false if the result does not fit in with their knowledge and conceptions. Professor Klauer developed new ways to explain such phenomena. Some of his works have set standards in the relevant research areas. This is what makes him a much sought-after cooperation partner all around the world. Karl Christoph Klauer studied mathematics and psychology at Aachen, Oxford and Hamburg. After a total of five years, he graduated in both subjects. Three years later, he completed his doctorate at Hamburg, before gaining his habilitation in psychology at the Free University Berlin four years later. In 1994, he took on a professorship in psychology at Heidelberg, which he left two years later to take on a chair in Bonn. He did not take up calls to Cardiff and Vienna.

Prof. Dr. Hannah Monyer (46), Neurobiology, University of Heidelberg (1.55 million euros) The molecular principle of synchronous and oscillatory network activity is Hannah Monyer's central research area. This means she studies how associated nerve cells temporarily adjust to each other to ensure that coherent, meaningful images of the outside world are produced in the brain. Her research focu
