Prof. Dr. Bertram Gerber (BG)

seeks to understand how mnemonic function – the acquisition, maintenance, and behavioural impact of memory – is organised at the levels of molecules, neurons, and neuronal circuits[103], [104][46][34]. We use behaviour experiments on larval and adult Drosophila which provide an experimental handle on … Continue reading
