Karl Georg Götz

Position: Emeritus  Unit: 

Karl Georg Götz was the assistant of Werner Reichardt, before he became a director of the department Neurophysiology of Insect Behavior at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics himself in 1968. He stayed till his retirement in 1998. His research focused on the optomotoric reactions and the neural basics of the orientation of Drosophila. He used neurological mutants of Drosophila to reveal how genetic instructions are translated into functional structures of the fly's central nervous system.
