Sergio Bagnato, MD, neurophysiologist, is head of the Clinical Neurophysiology Unit in the Giuseppe Giglio Foundation (Cefalù, Italy) since 2005. In 2006 he received his Ph.D in "Neuroscience, Behavioral Sciences and Motor Rehabilitation" from "La Sapienza" University, Rome (Italy). His main research fields focus on: (1) neurophysiological, clinical and genetic studies on patients suffering from severe disorders of consciousness (vegetative state and minimally conscious state) and (2) motor control evaluation in normal and pathological conditions (movement disorders and stroke). His expertise involves both conventional neurophysiological procedures (EEG, EMG, evoked potentials) and advanced neuromodulation techniques (transcranial magnetic stimulation and transcranial direct current stimulation). He is author of 60 papers published on international peer-reviewed journals and scientific books and holder of the European patent PCT/IB2009051466 (robotic device for gait rehabilitation). He serves as Editorial Board member for international scientific journals such as ISRN Neurosciences, International Neuropsychiatric Disease Journal, Asian Journal of Neuroscience, and EuroMediterranean Biomedical Journal, as well as a regular reviewer for several scientific journals.
