Institute for Neurobiology

Theses

We offer theses on various topics. If yor are interested just contact us.

Bachelor of Science

For example on the following topics:

  • behavioural experiments on communication behaviour of weakly electric fish
  • modeling of neural activity
  • behavioural experiments for spatial navigation and the role of the electrosensory flow
  • ...

Master of Science

Next to the topics that are possible in a bachelor thesis, master theses can also involve electrophysiological studies on the electrosensory system of the fish oder also the auditory system of the invertebraten.
