The technology behind world-class research

Research facilities

Our research would not be the success that it is without the assistance of our dedicated support teams, such as the Library staff and IT Services group. And world-class research requires world-class labs and resources, which our researchers and PhD students have at their fingertips - either on-site the MPI itself or at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour.

Our labs

  • Labs at the MPI


    The MPI is home to a wide range of facilities which can be used by our researchers, from the baby and child labs, molecular biology lab, behavioural labs, EEG labs, eye-tracking labs, and gesture labs to a state-of-the art virtual reality lab.

  • Labs at the Donders Institute


    Besides the MPI's own labs and facilities, our researchers can also use those at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour.

  • The Baby and Child Research Center


    Researchers at our Language Development Department carry out their studies into early development here at the Baby and Child Research Center. This research focuses on language development - specifically children's language, social, and cognitive development.

Archives & support teams

  • Library

    The library at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics first opened in 1976, and the collection has been expanding ever since. The collection closely reflects research that is currently being carried out at the Institute.

  • IT Services

    The MPI's IT Services supports the experimental and computational work performed at the Institute. The group also develops tools for research, which are also widely used at other research centers.

  • The Language Archive

    Numerous collections of language materials are stored in The Language Archive. This includes corpora of endangered languages, language development/acquisition corpora, and sign language corpora.

  • The MPI archives & databases

    Data collected by our researchers as part of MPI research projects can be accessed through the MPI archive. This includes data resulting from neurobiological studies, genetics studies, and behavioural studies.
