Giorgio Leodori MDNeurologist, Researcher, and PhD Candidate, Department of Human Neuroscience, “Sapienza” University of Rome, Rome, Italy
Dr. Leodori obtained his M.D. at “Sapienza” University of Rome and had his Neurology training at the Department of Human Neuroscience. He had a visiting fellowship in clinical neurophysiology at the Human Motor Control Section at the NINDS, NIH, where he worked with Dr. Mark Hallett. He is currently a researcher and a PhD candidate at the Department of Human Neuroscience, “Sapienza” University of Rome where he works with Prof. Alfredo Berardelli. His research activity is on clinical neurophysiology and the use of neurophysiological techniques investigating the human sensory and motor systems and their abnormalities in patients with movement disorders. His recent publications focused on the concurrent use of transcranial magnetic stimulation and electroencephalography to investigate primary motor cortex excitability, cortico-cortical connectivity and the pathophysiological mechanisms of motor and non-motor impairment in Parkinson’s disease and dystonia.
