Experimental Neuropathology and Neurology and Clinical Neurobiology - Neurorehabilitation - Movement disorders
Neuropathological and neurophysiological study of neurological disorders animal models. Production and description of experimental models of glioma and other neurological diseases and their use for experimental therapies (e.g. nanoparticles). Study of the molecular pathogenesis of rare genetic neurologic diseases (CADASIL and Familiar Amyloid Neuropathy). Biomarkers for neurologic diseases.
Biological basis of neurorehabilitation. New technologies for neurorehabilitation: automatic evaluation of movement disorders, "virtual reality"techniques, tele-rehabilitation, stimulation techniques (rTMS, tDCS), etc.
Genetics, molecular pathogenesis, clinic, neurophysiology, treatment, rehabilitation and tele-medicine of Parkinson's disease and Parkinsonisms.
