back to Team Magdalena Anna Springer PhD Student Room 2.315Email:email@example.comPhone: +49-221-470-4152Fax: +49-221-470-4889 I am interested in investigating the neural circuits that form the olfactory system in arthropods. At first glance, an arthropod brain seems to be rather simple to understand in comparison to a mammalian brain. However, a closer look raises a lot […]
