5-HT Spielwiese

Where does the name 5-HT come from?

We have networking already in the name.

5-hydroxytryptamine, or 5-HT for short, is the biochemical name of the neurotransmitter serotonin. This messenger has an extremely important, communicative job in our nervous system. For information to be processed in the brain at all, our little gray cells have to exchange information with each other. Among other things, 5-HT is responsible for this transmission of information.

5-HT symbolizes the activities of our Digital Hub around the networking of organizations, industry, universities and startups in collaboration and information exchange.
