Our research focuses on the anatomical, neurochemical, and functional analysis of the insect brain. Current projects investigate the anatomical and functional organization of the central complex (locust Schistocerca gregaria), mechanisms of polarization vision and sky compass orientation (Schistocerca gregaria), the organization of the circadian clock (cockroach Leucophaea maderae), and the distribution of neurotransmitters and neuropeptides (various species).

We are interested in ontogeny, plasticity and phylogeny of the olfactory system of insects. Our main focus lies on the antennal lobe, the first integration station for odor information in the brain of the sphinx moth Manduca sexta, the red flour beetle Tribolium castaneum, and the honeybee Apis mellifera. These model systems are used to examine the involvement of nitric oxide, neuropeptides, biogenic amines, electrical activity, hormonal coordination of the various developmental events, and the influence of pheromone components as well as of general odors on antennal lobe development.
