Lab at university

The lab is located at the Institute for Biosciences. In the spacious labs we installed many aquaria including a seawater aquarium. Most prominent is an aquarium that is several meters long and in which rainbow trouts were already conditioned on distant visual cues. Different apparatuses for conducting behavioural experiments with diverse stimuli are available.

 

Among those is the very sophisticated measurement tool which is necessary to run the Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). The PIV allows to document and analyse minute water movements. For the PIV strong lasers are worked with in the labs, and many computers are available for the analysis of the PIV pictures.
