The Jerusalem 14th Advanced School in Life Sciences: The Sense of Smell

Sun, 02/04/2006 to Thu, 06/04/2006


The Sense of Smell


General Director:
Bert Sakmann (Max Planck Institute, Heidelberg)

Adi Mizrahi (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem)
Hartwig Spors (Max Planck Institute for Medical Research, Heidelberg)


The School will explore the rapidly developing area of research on the sense of smell. We will raise questions ranging from genetics to evolution, with a strong emphasis on behaviour and neuroscience, such as how the brain encodes odour in varied creatures such as mice, honeybees, and humans.
