Dr. Giuseppe Lanza is currently Consultant Neurologist at the Sleep Research Center of the I.R.C.C.S. “Oasi” (Troina, Italy), which is a Collaborating Center of the World Health Organization for Research and Training in Neuroscience. After graduation with honours in Medicine in 2007, he trained at the School of Neurology of the University of Catania (Italy), and he is now a PhD Student at the same Institution. As visiting clinical research fellow, he further trained in Clinical Neurophysiology at the Department of Neuroscience, Newcastle University (UK). In 2013 he was selected for the Scientific Fellowship promoted by the European Federation of Neurological Societies (EFNS). From October 2015 he is Contract Professor of Neurology at the “Kore” University of Enna (Italy). He has co-authored more than 50 publications in international refereed Journals and Conferences, and he is serving as an editorial member & expert Reviewer of several reputed international Journals, such as Brain Research, Aging Clinical and Experimental Research and Somatosensory & Motor Research. He is a member of different scientific societies, such as the Italian Neurological Society (SIN), the Italian Association of Sleep Medicine (AIMS) and the International Restless Legs Syndrome Study Group (IRLSSG). His research focuses on the application of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques in clinical contexts, such as cerebrovascular diseases, cognitive impairment, sleep disorders and neuropsychiatric diseases. More recently, he is carrying forward investigations based on integration of different neurophysiological methods for the experimental assessment of cortical plasticity involved in the regulation of sleep and cognitive functions in both normal and pathological conditions.
