Our research facilities
The research of our group "Sensory and cognitive ecology" takes place in two facilities. The sensory and cognitive abilities of marine mammals as well as, since June 2012, those of octopods are investigated on the institute ship "Lichtenberg" that is situated within the Marina Hohe Düne. Visitors are welcome to experience the scientific life from the sundeck of the institute ship (Science live).
The fish lab is located at the Institute for Biosciences in downtown Rostock. Here we conduct behavioural experiments and physical measurements with various fish species. Only invited guests are able to have a closer look at our research in the fish lab.
