ERASMUS International Lecture Series with our Partner Universities of Caen, Istanbul, Ljubljana, Maribor, Marseille, Olomouc, Pécs, Rome and Zagreb TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINELecturer: Prof. Claudio Babiloni, Sapienza University of RomeLecture title: Cortical resting state EEG rhythms in Alzheimer’s and Lewy body diseasesWednesday, 14 April 2021 , 17.00 - 18.30 PM (UTC+2, CEST) According to NIA-AA Research A-T-N Framework (Jack et al., 2018, Alzheimer’s & Dementia), the in-vivo assessment of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is based on biomarkers of brain amyloidosis, tauopathy, and neurodegeneration. What about brain Neurophysiology? This talk will discuss converging EEG evidence showing that AD substantially affects cerebral neurophysiological ascending and thalamocortical systems regulating brain arousal and vigilance in wakefulness. Diseases with Lewy bodies also show substantial alterations in EEG activity during wakefulness but with differences in topography and frequency of that activity suggesting peculiar effects on brain arousal and vigilance. Claudio Babiloni received a PhD in Biomedical Sciences and is Associate Professor of Physiology at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology “Erspamer” (Faculty of Pharmacy and Medicine) at Sapienza University of Rome. His group investigates neurophysiological brain rhythms underpinning the regulation of vigilance and cognitive functions in aging with a focus on Alzheimer's and Lewy body diseases. Core methods are EEG techniques. His research was supported by European Community and the Italian Ministries of University and Health. The findings of his research were published in over 300 articles in international journals. Claudio is presently Chair of the ISTAART Electrophysiology Professional Interest Area and Senior Co-Chair of the Workgroup on "Advanced EEG Techniques in Clinical Neurophysiology" of the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology.    Participation is possible with the following zoom access link without prior registration Zoom meeting link for lecture on 14 April 2021 (Claudio Babiloni/Sapienza University of Rome) 951 5321 7506Passwort: 518725
