The IRCCS San Giovanni di Dio Fatebenefratelli is operating since 120 years
and has been appointed and funded as national centre of excellence in
research and care by the Italian Ministry of Health since 1996. More than
4500 patients with Alzheimer’s Dementia or associated disorders and about
1700 patients with psychiatric diseases are treated each year. The research
division, besides the Cognitive Neuroscience Section, includes the
laboratories of Genetics, Neuropsychopharmacology, Neurobiology, Proteomic,
Neuroimaging, Ethic and Epidemiology and employs about fifty professional

The Cognitive Neuroscience Unit is provided with several state-of-the-art
devices necessary for the application of brain stimulation techniques
(transcranial magnetic stimulation: TMS, rTMS, and transcranial electrical
stimulation: tDCS, tACS and tRNS) and for the recording and the analysis of
electrophysiological signals (EEG, EMG) as well as neuropsychological
testing. The simultaneous co- registration of electroencephalography and
TMS application is also available, field where we have been pioneers in the
national research.
