The virtual Nobel Prize in Psychology in 2009 goes to Rainer Reisenzein. The Prize was awarded "for his Belief-Desire Theory of Emotion and the resulting integration of cognitive and affective Sciences" (election session of the student Scientific Board, June 26, 2009).
Reisenzein is the first Laureate in the history of the Prize who does not live and work in the USA.
