Inés-TrigoDr. Ines Trigo Damas studied Biology at the University of Jaen (Spain). She made her doctoral thesis at the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research in Tübingen (Germany) where she started out at the electrophysiological recordings and behaviour studies with primates. In 2010 she joined Dr. Obeso’s team and since then, she has been studying the neuronal activity of the basal ganglia and their alterations in the MPTP primate model.
