Our Next Seminar

Ivan de Araujo, PhD
Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics

Tuesday, June 4 at 12:45pm
Pancoe Auditorium / Zoom 

Ivan de Araujo and his team want to understand how the numerous processes in the human body are recorded and controlled by the brain and how these in turn influence neuronal processing. Among other things, the researchers are investigating the vagus nerve, which plays a crucial role in communication between the brain and the body, as well as the neuronal basis of hunting behavior in mice.
