Research line

Electromyography. Motor Control Neuropathic Pain.


The studies run in our group involve the evaluation of motor and sensory physiology in human subjects, both healthy subjects and patients, using non-invasive methods:

  • Studies of reflex excitability in human subjects.
  • Modulation of brain activity by cortical magnetic stimulation.
  • Evaluation of sensory perception.



  • Disease / disorder characterization: Pathophysiological diagnoses
  • Methods for diagnostic: Non-invasive brain stimulation
  • Clinical data: Motor and sensory nerves and pathways
  • Development of new tools / technologies / computational methods: Excitability studies


Keywords: electromyography, nerve conduction studies, reflex excitability, motor control, neuropathic pain, sensory perception.
