Research focus

Development, plasticity and phylogeny of the central olfactory pathway of insects:

• distribution, regulation and function of signaling molecules including neuropeptides, biogenic amines and nitric oxide

• role of  neuronal activity and hormones

• comparative analysis of neuroarchitecture and neurochemistry


Techniques

- Immunocytochmistry combined with scanning confocal microscopy and 3D reconstructions to analyze neuroarchitecture and distribution of neuromediators

- Direct peptide profiling by MALDI-TOF mass-spectrometry to detect neuropeptides in selected brain areas during various developmental and physiological states

- manipulations (e.g. genetically, injections of hormones, odor deprivation) during development and in adults and analysis of effects on neuroarchitecture, on expression pattern of neuromediators and on behavior

- behavioral assays to study olfactory driven behavior and its plasticity
