The unit comprises the group of Hanns Ulrich Zeilhofer and the independent group headed by Dietmar Benke.
The Zeilhofer group focuses on sensory processing on the spinal cord circuits and on pain. The research of the Benke group addresses the trafficking of G-protein coupled receptors and protein-protein interactions of GABA-B receptors.

A phospho-deficient α3 glycine receptor mutation alters synaptic glycine and GABA release in mouse spinal dorsal horn neurons.
"Werynska et al. Karolina has characterized synaptic transmission in the spinal dorsal horn of a phosphor-deficient glycine receptor point-mutated mouse. She found that not only was this receptor resistant to PKA-dependent phosphorylation but these mice also exhibited increased synaptic glycine and GABA release, suggesting the presence of glycine receptors not only on postsynaptic sites but also on presynaptic terminals of inhibitory dorsal horn neurons.
