Join us in Florence, Italy for the Fresco meeting on June 2022 focusing on synaptic plasticity and Parkinson’s disease. In the workshop, international experts will provide an overview of the scientific advances on different aspects of brain plasticity from bench to bedside in health and movement disorders. On the last day, NYU Langone faculty will present didactic lectures, providing an overview of advances in diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease and related disorders. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of brain function and its relevance to diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease, parkinsonisms, and movement disorders.
