  • Social Networks and Health Inequalities in Young and Middle Adulthood

    In this chapter we deal with the health and inequality aspects of networks from a psychological and sociological life span perspective.

We focus exclusively on young and middle adulthood—here roughly defined ...

  • Can worker codetermination stabilize democracies? Works councils and satisfaction with democracy in Germany

    Many citizens are relatively dissatisfied with the democratic regimes they live in, which can be a threat to political stability.

(2014) reported a negative association between 2D:4D, a suggested marker of prenatal testosterone exposure, and the Cognitive Reflection Test (CRT) in a sample of 623 university students. In this pre-registered study, we test whether we can replicate their findings in a general population sample of over 2,500 individuals from Germany.
