GAMU-E Grant goes to LEVYNA
The Grant Agency of the Masaryk University annually issues a grant call with several categories. Martin Lang and Jan Krátký succeeded in a category, which is called "E” (“Excellent results”). Its aim is to help researchers to complete publications of exceptionally high quality.
Martin and Honza succeeded in this grant call with the project called "The Entropy-Reduction Model of Ritualized Behavior". They will use it to finish a publication based on their collaborative research on the effects of ritualized behavior on anxiety. They are continuing in a good LEVYNA tradition as Jakub Cigán got the same grant last year.
