In the Micro-Flight Laboratory we use ultra-fast cameras and advanced image analysis methods to measure the flight of insects and their correction maneuvers. 

Our main research questions are:

  1. Experimental research on flight in small and fast scales: How do insects control their flight?
  2. How do insects represent information on their own orientation?
  3. How do insects combine sensory information from multiple modalities during flight?
  4. What are the neural and genetic mechanisms that determine flight control in insects?
  5. Can we build tiny insect-like flying robots?
