Research presentation

Patrik Sörqvist

Professor

Research subject: Miljövetenskap

I am an experimental psychologist and research director of environmental psychology at the University of Gävle. My research concerns mostly cognitive perspectives on the psychology of the built and natural environment. Most recently, I've been interested in the cognitive psychology of climatic change.

CURRENT RESEARCH

A new perspective on working memory and its relation to attention and learning

Financially supported by a grant from the Swedish Research Council (2,250,000 SEK) awarded to Patrik Sörqvist (Co-PI: Marsh).
