Research interests
Topic Description Research area
Sleep disordered breathing in children The research activity is aimed to characterize respiratory sleep disorders in children with adeno-tonsillar hyperplasia, obesity, and cranio-facial dysmorphisms in complex genetic syndromes. The main tool are cardio-respiratory polysomnography (limited channels) and full polysomnography. The activity is carried out in collaboration with other specialists such as otolaryngology, maxillofacial surgery, and ophthalmology. Pediatrics
Neuromuscular diseases Pathogenic mechanisms of neuromuscular diseases: Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies; Sporadic inclusion body myositis (s-IBM); Myofibrillar myopathies; Brody disease and Brody syndrome; Mitochondrial diseases. Neurosciences
Clinical Neurophysiology 1 / 1 Clinical neurophysiology is a medical specialty that studies the central and peripheral nervous systems through the recording of bioelectrical activity, whether spontaneous or stimulated. It encompasses both research regarding the pathophysiology along with clinical methods used to diagnose neurologic diseases. Examinations in the clinical neurophysiology are considered an extension of the neurologic examination and include (but are not limited to) Electromyography (EMG), nerve conduction studies (NCS), Evoked potentials (EP), Electroencephalography (EEG), Polygraphic recordings, and, Polysomnography. Neurosciences
Child neurology Neurophysiological and clinical study of congenital or childhood-onset neurological diseases, with particular interest in rare and complex childhood epilepsies, sleep disorders and movement disorders. Developmental neurobiology
