Specialist interest within Movement Disorders: Parkinson's disease, dystonia, Tourrette syndrome, transcranial magnetic stimulation, genetics, imaging.

The group activity led by Dr. Pablo Mir is focused on the movement disorders, from both clinical and research perspectives. This activity happens in the clinical context of the Movement Disorders Unit in the Clinical Neuroscience Department at the University Hospital Virgen del Rocio, being part of the Andalusian Health System (Servicio Anadaluz de Salud (SAS). Our group focuses its research on three main areas:

Study of genetic factors involved in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD) and other movement disorders. In the last few years numerous genes related to the pathophysiology of movement disorders have been described. Our group is interested in the characterization of these genes, as well as of other possible candidate genes. Our final objective is to investigate the functional consequences of the alterations of these genes in our population.

Transcraneal magnetic stimulation (TMS) in the study of the pathophysiology of PD and other movement disorders. In this line our group attempts to evaluate, using TMS, the role of various areas of the brain in the pathophysiology of PD and other movement disorders, as well as their modulation by drugs, functional surgery and genetic factors.

Studies of the clinical aspects of PD and other movement disorders. The objective of this line is focused on the more clinical aspects of movement disorders, describing unusual presentations of different diseases and differential clinical characteristics of some entities. The study of the efficacy of various therapies is also included, as well as the diagnostic value of different neuroimaging tests in PD and other movement disorders.
