Collaborations with other groups
DFG Priority Programm "Integrative analysis of olfaction"
A federal research program on olfactory physiology. A total of 37 research groups, organized in 16 "tandems", work on neurophysiological
questioons of olfaction in arthropods and vertebrates. In our "tandem", we examine together with Prof. Frank Müller from the Jülich Research
Center the influence of the trigeminal system on the olfactory system.
