Markus A. Maier is a professor of psychology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) and is head of the research unit General Psychology II (Emotion and Motivation). Furthermore, he is a Research Fellow at the International University of Catalonia (UIC, Barcelona/Spain). His research contributes to a better understanding of unconscious emotional and motivational processes and their impact on behavior planning and decision making. He is currently working on quantum-based models of consciousness and the relationship between mind, time, and matter. His research is mainly based on laboratory experiments.
