This research area includes a wide range of studies, strongly impacting on clinical practice, aimed at understanding the molecular basis of the damage (neuropathological aspect) and the physiopathogenetic related mechanisms (neurophysiopathological aspect) finalized to start specific and targeted rehabilitation interventions (neurorehabilitation aspect).
Child development is a gradual process of development of cognitive-linguistic, socio-emotional and sensory motor skills, each of them interconnected and interacting. The environment, acting on the individual biological conditions through GxE mechanism, determines a constant remodeling of functions and individual skills.
The Neurobiology, Computational Biology and Pharmacology research area is operating two labs in Bosisio Parini (Lombardy) and Padua (Veneto). Its research activity is mainly focused on rare neurological, neurodegenerative and developmental diseases; among these of particular importance are syndromic forms of mental retardation, autism and epilepsy as well as neuromuscular diseases
The Area of Applied Technologies develops innovative diagnostic and therapeutic methods with positive effects within the Neurorehabilitation field, making them available to the other research areas, to the National Health Service and to the whole international scientific community
