Welcome to our pages

Our group is part of the Institute of Neuro and Behavioral Biology, at WWU. We study biological rhythms of Drosophila melanogaster, in particular the molecular mechanisms underlying the daily resetting of the circadian clock to regular changes of the environment (light and temperature).

By using genetic, molecular, histological and behavioral approaches, we try to elucidate  the sensory pathways for light and temperature cues, their integration in the central brain clock neurons, and how they influence daily clock gene oscillations and behaviour.
