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.
