We are interested in how behaviour adapts animals to pursue their goals under the complex conditions of natural environments. For our studies on decision making we work with mice, rats and, to study decision making under natural, ecological conditions, with flower-visiting bats. For the neural substrates of behaviour we are mostly interested in the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex. We also use our knowledge of animal behaviour in the Berlin Mouse Clinic for Neurology and Psychiatry, a modern behaviour diagnostic facility within the NeuroCure Center of Excellence www.berlinmouseclinic.org, where we perform diagnostic tests in mouse and rat models of neurological and psychiatric diseases to promote translational research. Our own engineering lab develops novel behaviour detection and experimentation technologies using the latest technology.
