The MBExC welcomes Junior Research Group leader Dr. Thomas Frank

With beginning of the new year, neuroscientist Dr. Thomas Frank took up a MBExC Junior Research Group for Zebrafish Neurobiology. Together with his team, he aims on understanding how the brain processes smells and how that leads to specific actions and flexible behaviors. Neuronal information processing at multiple scales, from synapses to whole brain networks is investigated with zebrafish as model organism. The independent junior research group is affiliated with the Faculty of Biology and Psychology and will be housed at the European Neuroscience Institute.
