Vincenzo Di Lazzaro

Vincenzo Di Lazzaro is Professor of Neurology, Medical Director for Clinical Neurology and serves as Director for the Neurology Residency Program and Research Coordinator of Campus Bio-Medico Medical School. He is President-elect of Italian Society of Clinical Neurophysiology Vincenzo Di Lazzaro received his M.D. in 1986 and his residency in Neurology in 1990, both from Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Rome, Italy. He joined Campus Bio-Medico Medical School in 2012. The main areas of research are the study of the physiological bases of recovery in stroke and the development of methods of neuromodulation (both invasive and non-invasive) as potential treatment tools for several neurological diseases, movement disorders and stroke in particular. The studies on the invasive deep brain stimulation are highly cited and have a significant impact on the field of deep brain stimulation, these studies elucidated the mechanisms of action of high frequency stimulation of the human basal ganglia and identified new targets for deep brain stimulation such as the peduncolo pontine nucleus. Another relevant area is the use of neurophysiological techniques for the diagnosis of neurological disorders (dementia in particular), for the evaluation of the effects of drugs on the intact human brain and for the study of human brain plasticity. Professor Di Lazzaro participated in several clinical studies (including Crystal study), most of them Phase III studies and mainly in stroke patients, all these previous studies required GCP certification. Editorial activity: Editor of Case Reports in Medicine; Editor of Neurology Research International; Editor of Behavioural Neurology; Editorial Board of Brain Stimulation Vincenzo Di Lazzaro has authored more than 300 peer-reviewed publications, 8 book chapters, with about 20.000 citations and an h-index of 65.
