“Transient visual pathway critical for normal development of primate grasping behaviour”

Inaki completed his PhD at the University of the Basque Country (Leioa, Spain) studying the reorganisation of brain connections after early blindness. He undertook his first postdoc in the Laboratory of Regenerative Therapy, (Univ. Navarre, Pamplona, Spain) where his research focused on the development of a new genetic animal model of Parkinson’s disease in the macaque monkey; and on the olfactory neuropathology of patients with different neurodegenerative disorders.

In 2013 Iñaki joined the Bourne Lab to study the involvement of the pulvinar nucleus in cortical development and behaviour. He uses several approaches including lesioning, neural tracing, immunohistochemistry, neuroimaging and behavioural studies.
