The Fresco International Workshop on Synaptic Plasticity and Advances in Parkinson's Disease is organized by New York University (NYU) School of Medicine and will be held from Nov 14 - 17, 2018 at Institute of the Innocents, Firenze, Toscana, Italy.
The target audience for this medical event is Researchers, physicians and other care providers in the field of neurology, internal medicine, rehabilitation medicine, neurosurgery, psychiatry, geriatrics, and other health care professionals working with patients with Parkinson's disease and related disorders as well as neuropsychiatric disorders
Join us in Florence, Italy this November for a three and a half day course focusing on synaptic plasticity, Parkinson’s disease and neuropsychiatric disorders. In the first two and a half day workshop, international experts will provide an overview of the scientific advances on different aspects of brain plasticity from bench to bedside. The five sessions will explore: a possible role of art and music in rehabilitation of neurodegenerative diseases; the relation between genetics, epigenetics and plasticity, as well as the relation between immunity, inflammation process and plasticity; novel measures of functional and structural connectivity; the role of plasticity in the genesis and treatment of psychiatric symptoms. In the closing day, NYU Langone Faculty at the Fresco Institute and a panel of international experts, including the leaders in the Fresco network in Italy, will present didactic lectures, providing an extensive overview of advances in diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease and related disorders. Participants will walk away with a deeper understanding of plasticity and its relevance to the genesis, diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative disorders.
After this activity, participants should be able to:
• Understand the mechanisms of plasticity and their relevance in the genesis and treatment of symptoms of Parkinson's disease and neuropsychiatric disorders
• Understand the latest development in the experimental therapeutic of Parkinson's disease
• Understand the use of rehabilitation techniques in neurodegenerative disorders
• Understand the use of relevant technology in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders
• Identify specific neurological problems and complications and determine which patients to treat or refer to other health care specialists for additional or specific treatments
• Use neuroimaging and genetic testing to its full advantage and recognize some of its limitations, as well as benefits in assessing patients with Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
