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
