COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Summer School “Biological and Clinical converging pathways in Alzheimer and Parkinson disease” is an opportunity for young neurologists who are interested in specializing in Neurodegenerative diseases to receive in-depth instruction from internationally-recognized experts.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Understand the common and divergent pathways across neurodegenerative diseases
  • Propose a differential diagnosis for complex cases and propose specific clinical/imaging/neurophysiological or biological markers assessment
  • Propose a symptomatic personalized treatment for dementia and movement disorder
  • Understand the rationale and review the more recent evidences for new disease-modifying target therapies across neurodegenerative diseases
