Why so Distracted?
Why did you participate in LUX:plorations?
“For me, LUX:plorations was the ideal opportunity to communicate science and to share my fascination for working on the human brain. I think it is really important for the public to understand what we do in our labs, and I believe that images and comics are great ways to explain complex research topics. I am hoping that our comic will also get the next generation interested in research!”
What did you like most about LUX:plorations?

I learned a lot from this amazing project!”
What was the biggest challenge for you?
