    International Symposium on Insect Olfaction in Würzburg


    July 20th 2012, Toscana Saal, Würzburger Residenz. Title: „Olfaction in insects under debate: from receptors to behavior“

    Olfactory systems are highly important in controlling insect behavior. A panel of internationally recognized speakers will present recent advances of research at all levels of insect olfaction at this meeting - from the molecular mechanisms of chemoreception, neuronal processing of olfactory information in the brain, to the control of olfactory guided behavior.

    The symposium is organized by Monika Stengl (Univ. Kassel) & Wolfgang Rössler (Univ. Würzburg) and supported by the DFG priority program 1392 “Integrative Analysis of Olfaction”.

    Limited space at the symposium is still available for interested participants. For further information, please contact:
