Course Description

Techniques of clinical neurophysiology are helpful for characterizing various movement disorders, consequently guiding etiological research and therapy. However, not many neurologists are familiar with this special filed. 

This online webinar course consists of up-to-date knowledge and recent developments in the diagnosis, pathophysiology, current treatment of noninvasive brain stimulation and future treatment for Parkinson’s disease (PD) and related disorders.

The main theme of the course is to inspire the enthusiasm of young clinicians and scientists with interest in the advances of neurophysiology research in PD and related movement disorders; and to promote collaborations between young generations to generate research ideas that will facilitate the progress of research in the field focusing on electrophysiology of movement disorders.

Invited speakers are distinguished specialists on their scientific topic. The participants will receive insights and information to update the knowledge and help them develop their own study ideas. 

All course materials and lectures will be available for “on-demand” viewing starting on August 15, 2020.

Interactive Components

Interactive Question and Answer session with lecturers. Registered participants will have an opportunity to submit questions to the faculty panel regarding their inquiries on the topic.

Target Audience

Neurologists, Neurophysiologists, Rehabilitation Physicians, Residents and Students.

Learning Objectives 
  1. To know how to perform electrophysiology study as a diagnosis tool in movement disorders. 
  2. To understand the pathophysiology of PD using techniques of clinical neurophysiology, including TMS. 
  3. To provide up-to-date evidence of therapeutic effectiveness of non-invasive brain stimulation for PD.
  4. To update the development and prospection of focus ultrasound on PD treatment.
