Neurobiology and Genetics

WG Förster

The research focus of the professorship Förster lies in the exploration of the circadian clock in Drosophila and selected other arthropods

  • Neuronal network of the circadian clock
  • Synchronisation of the clock by light
  • Role of Rhodopsins in Photo-, Mechano- und Thermosensoric
  • Life-imaging in clock neurons
  • Circadian clock and measurement of day length
  • Photoperiodic adaptations
  • meaning of the circadian clock for survival
