How does the scent get into the brain? And what happens when we can no longer smell?

Unconsciously, the sense of smell accompanies us throughout our lives - from food to love. We often only really appreciate it when it fails. Moritz Engelhardt investigates neuronal processes in smelling as well as the loss of smell in Covid-19 and Parkinson's disease. Sit down with him and "sniff" into his research!

Komm, setz dich... for a natter about science and art

How does the brain interpret scent? What do toilets have to do with a sustainable future? How do you make nail polish that tests for illegal drugs? And how did tax havens become quasi-legal free zones?
Do you have a lot of questions about science and art, but don't want to ask them in front of a large audience? Come to theKaufhaus or Café Koffij, and sit down with invited experts. Ask your individual questions and learn more about research, methods and approaches.
The meetings take place both at the Kaufhaus am Marktplatz and at Café Koffij.
