Dr. Nakajima’s group developed the in utero electroporation technique and found several modes of neuronal migration such as multipolar migration, caudal migratory stream, climbing mode of hippocampal neurons, and 2-step migration of interneurons. His group focuses on the mechanisms underlying the development of cortical layers and neuronal circuits.
