Karin Panser is a member of Andrew Straw’s group at the IMP Vienna. The team addresses the fundamental question of how the brain of a fruit fly functions. "We aim to understand how the fly processes complex visual input and translates that into a specific coordinated behavior," Panser explains. For her neuroscientific studies, she needs greatly enlarged, detailed pictures generated with a confocal microscope. To process and analyze her data, Panser uses the software "Huygens (SVI.NL),"
