    Aenis, Thomas, Dr. (Agricultural Consulting and Communication Studies)

    Duration of Project: 11/2017 - 12/2019

    Financer: Bundesministerium für Umwelt, Naturschutz und Reaktorsicherheit

    The objective of the project on “Vocational Education for climate-adapted green spaces” is to support educational institutions and teachers in education, training and further education in the field of landscape gardening: to integrate climate change ...

  • Usage of Solar Energy for the Bioelectrocatalysis – Photobiohybrid Eletrodes for the Light-Driven Synthesis of Valuable Substances (II, SP B)

    Zouni, Athina, PD Dr. (Honorary Chairs / Professors by Special Appointment / Part-Time Lecturers)

    Duration of Project: 02/2018 - 01/2021

    Financer: BMBF

    The aims of the Tandem-project are light-triggered electrodes for efficient energy conversion. In the frame of the prolonged period of work it is planned to increase the efficiency of photobio-electrodes and also to couple them with enzymatic convers ...

  • Uncovering Pathophysiological Mechanisms of Psychosis Using the Oculomotor System

    Rolfs, Martin, Prof. Dr. (General Psychology - Active Perception and Cognition)

    Duration of Project: 09/2017 - 07/2021

    Financer: Sonstige internationale öffentliche Mittelgeber

    Disturbances in a sense of self are a hallmark of schizophrenia. These disturbances can be characterized by a distorted sense of agency – the subjective sense that I cause the actions I produce. Agency distortions are manifest in many psychotic sympt ...

  • The Roles of Grid and Place Cells and Phase Precession in Human Episodic Memory

    Kempter, Richard, Prof. Dr. (Computational Neuroscience)

    Duration of Project: 03/2018 - 06/2021

    Financer: BMBF

    This research project uses direct human brain recordings to characterize the neuronal signals that represent aspects of individual episodic memories. A key question is understanding how the brain supports tasks such as “Where did I leave my keys this ...

  • The life cycles of parasitic worms - from macro-evolutionary patterns to the genetics of adaptation

    Benesh, Daniel, Dr. (Molecular Parasitology)

    Duration of Project: 05/2019 - 04/2022

    Financer: DFG: Eigene Stelle (Sachbeihilfe)

    Many parasites have complex life cycles in which they infect multiple hosts in succession before reproducing. These life cycles are perplexing, because they seem risky. As the number of consecutive hosts in a life cycle increases, so does the risk of ...

  • The functional impact of co- and post-translational N-terminal protein modifications in the chloroplast under stresses.

    Grimm, Bernhard, Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Prof. Dr. (Plant Physiology)

    Duration of Project: 01/2021 - 12/2023

    Financer: DFG: Sachbeihilfe

    Chloroplasts primarily function as bioreactors converting light into chemical energy. In addition, they also act as regulatory hub for intracellular communication and mediation of environmental impacts to regulate nuclear gene expression. Chloroplast ...

  • Sex Hormonal Control of the Rat Somatosensory Cortex

    Brecht, Michael, Prof. Dr. (Animal Physiology/Systems Neurobiology and Neural Computation)

    Duration of Project: 01/2018 - 06/2021

    Financer: DFG: Sachbeihilfe

    The primary objective of this proposal is to determine the nature and extent to which sex hormones influence neuronal activity, development and behaviors mediated by the somatosensory cortex. The role of sex hormones in cortical information processin ...

  • Representing and Attending to the Temporal Structure of Visual Events in Working Memory

    Heuer, Anna, Dr. rer. nat. (General Psychology - Active Perception and Cognition)

    Duration of Project: 09/2018 - 08/2021

    Financer: DFG: Eigene Stelle (Sachbeihilfe)

    Visual events can be characterized by their spatiotemporal structure, for instance by the points in space and time at which they occur, by their spatial distribution and temporal duration. The representation of temporal structure is, however, not nea ...

  • Rearing Beneficial Insects for Stored Product Pest Management to Improve Food Security in Ghana

    Ulrichs, Christian, Prof. Dr. rer. nat.; Dr. rer. agr. (Urban Plant Ecophysiology)

    Duration of Project: 01/2017 - 12/2019

    Financer: Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung

    The current population of Ghana is 25 million and over 60% of them live in urban areas, indicating that increasing quantities of food will have to be moved over long distances to supply the growing urban demand. Post-harvest losses (PHL) are economic ...

  • Presubicular Bursting and Visual Anchoring of the Head Direction Signal

    Brecht, Michael, Prof. Dr. (Animal Physiology/Systems Neurobiology and Neural Computation)

    Duration of Project: 04/2019 - 03/2022

    Financer: DFG: Sachbeihilfe

    Knowing where we are, where we have come from and where we are going is crucial to behavior. Our sense of orientation derives from combining multiple types of sensory information with our memory of known places, and it is closely linked to networks t ...
