In the movie "The amazing Dr. Clitterhouse" (1938, directed by Anatole Litvak) the New York psychologist Dr. Clitterhouse (played by Edward G. Robinson) is interested in medical aspects of criminal behavior, and to approach more reality in his investigations, he joins a robbery gang and measures blood pressure and other stress parameters prior to, during and after burglaries and other crimes. The gang calls him "professor", and one of the members once noted to him "this is a tic of yours, professor, this research, isn´t it?" This perfectly matches what research and science is about indeed: Curiosity about what drives the world (or at least a small part of it), asking questions that have not yet found an answer, and once approached, may raise more questions instead. Willing to share knowledge, but expecting others to do the same, and never believing "final" conclusion but always insist that there is more to detect in the future. Statements printed in papers are therefore not the final "truth" but small or (sometimes) larger steps towards it, but often as well deviations, errors, or failures. Science is the best of all professions, but it is also a "tic".


Journal Publications (Peer Review)

PUBMED is the database of all relevant medical publications as collected by the National Institute of Health (NIH) in Washington. Most are peer reviewed, even if in native language (so German in my case). Right now it contains approximately 370 of my publications, and if you do not gain access to one of them that you would like to read, do not hesitate to contact me and ask for a copy. Some of them are copyright protected, but I can provide individual copies to individuals.

Further Publicationen (without peer-review)

Another 350 publications of mine, mostly book chapters and papers from non-peer reviewed journals are difficult to list here (it would take too many pages that nobody is interested in), but if you happen to run into one you would like to see, just write me an email: as most scientist, I am obsessive when it comes to counting and collecting my work, so there are copies of almost all and everything that carries my name on it.

The thing that I did not start collecting in time - and now it`s too late - is my appearance in public media (TV, radio, newspaper, internet) but that may have to do with my reluctancy to see myself performing: While I enjoyed (and still enjoy) lecturing, I hate to look at videos showing me doing this - sorry, no list can be provided, but you may find many on the internet.

Conference Contributions

I have given more than 700 oral presentations at various occasions nationally and internationally, and I have coauthored more than 500 posters in the last 35 years. Listing them all does not make much sense (old stuff partially, and often outdated: science is about progress, not preservation of the past).
