Rolf Ulrich is a cognitive psychologist. As a Heisenberg scholar of the German Research Foundation, he conducted research at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He then held professorships at the University of Konstanz, the University of Wuppertal, and the University of Tübingen. His research focuses on temporal cognition (i.e., time perception, representation of time, timing, temporal illusions, time and language, time-course of mental processes, and mental chronometry). The Wilhelm Wundt Society awarded him the Wilhelm-Wundt prize for basic research in psychology. He is a member of the Geman National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina.
Mental Representation of Past Events along the Mental Timeline. In Western culture, people represent deictic time as a mental timeline that runs from left to right. This project investigates the spatial representation of this timeline within the cognitive system. The research builds on current concepts and experimental designs in the research field of temporal cognition.
