How immunity controls behavior

Prof Michael Pankratz and his research group at the LIMES (Life and Medical Sciences) institute study the molecular mechanisms underlying brain physiology and behavior.

Shedding light on how the immune system is linked with behavior, Prof Pankratz explains us why Drosophila is a suited model to study … Continue reading How immunity controls behavior »
