Dr. Elisa Pelosin



Completed her PhD in experimental neuroscience at the University of Genoa, where she is now a lecturer with the department of neuroscience. She is also a reviewer for international journals
(including: Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair, Archive Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Parkinsonism and Related Disorders). Dr. Pelosin has been a key member of the writing group of
European Guidelines for Physical Therapists in Rehabilitation of Parkinson’s Disease. In her research, Dr. Pelosin’s work has been primarily focused in verifying the feasibility and the efficacy
of innovative rehabilitative treatments in in elderly population and in movement disorder patients, based on motor learning processes. Specifically, the thrust of Dr. Pelosin’s research projects, has been to develop new rehabilitative protocol to improve gait, balance and freezing of gait. In addition, in the last years, she was actively involved in studying compensatory mechanisms and
brain plasticity in patients with movement disorders.
