Field of research (still ongoing): (a) investigation of the brain networks subserving the pathological activities recorded in [r(20)] patients. These imaging findings will be correlated with the clinical and genetic features (i.e. percentage of mosaic cells, cognitive performance).
Primary aim is to identify possible imaging bio-marker of this syndrome which might potentially help clinicians in an earlier diagnosis of the disorder.
The studies are conducted by a multi-disciplinary team with high expertise in the functional and structural neuro-imaging analysis and clinical evaluation of patients with [r(20)] syndrome.
Published research from the Italian [r(20)] collaborative group can be found in our Knowledge Base, within the PubMed folder.
