Project description

In this research project, we investigate how implicit evaluations are learned and how they can be changed. We will therefore explore the effects of a task that involves approach and avoid responses. We will further our knowledge on the crucial factors that cause these changes and examine whether conscious knowledge can produce and influence these effects.
