Research in the department focuses on the physiology of insect olfaction, particularly on the molecular and cellular processes underlying the reception, discrimination, and coding of olfactory signals. In context of olfaction, we are also interested in the pheromones that serve for chemical communication in reproductive behavior and that are perfectly attuned to the detector systems. Alongside our major theme olfaction, research projects address some specific aspects of reproductive physiology in insects.
