Di Monte Group: Neurodegeneration and Neuroprotection in Parkinson’s Disease
We aim to understand how mammals use vision to make decisions
Molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration
Mechanisms of synaptic function, plasticity and diversity in health and disease
From architecture to functional connectomics
Human structural and functional neuroimaging (fRMI and PET) with a focus on neurodegenerative disorders.
Social & Affective Neuroscience
We are investigating glia cells and their impact on brain function under normal conditions and in epilepsy
We record the activity of single neurons in the brains of epilepsy patients implanted with electrodes for seizure focus localization.
Presynaptic mechanisms, synaptic computation and neuron-glia signaling
