Animal Physiology

Welcome to the Animal Physiology Group

We study molecular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity and sensory physiology in Drosophila and investigate the operation of neuronal circuits in further insect species in the context of social interactions and adaptive behaviour. To this end, we engage neuro- and optogenetic approaches, electrophysiolgy, behavioural analysis, conventional and super-resolution light microscopy.
