Do mice talk in different ultrasound dialects? Ultrasound songs of mice vary depending on their origin

Ultrasonic vocalization is important to mice for mate choice and social interactions. Researchers at the institute are currently investigating if animals from different populations have developed distinct dialects. -Picture: Svenja Hoier and Christine Pfeifle

Max Planck meets boys and girls

The institute did again welcome participants of this year's Boys' and Girls' Day on April 23rd, 2015 between 8 am and 3 pm. The Boys were introduced to the daily work in the laboratory. They had the chance to analyse water samples and to extract DNA from tomatoes. The girls could experience how networks are built and what you can learn from flies. This way they got insights into the work life of a scientist.
