Electrodiagnosis of ALS
Mamede de Carvalho
Mamede de Carvalho is a clinical neurologist and neurophysiologist, a senior graduate assistant at the Centro Hospitalar Universitário Lisboa Norte. He has been a principal investigator of IMM since 2003, and a Unit Leader since 2005. His scientific activity involves several techniques at clinical neurophysiology and various pathologies, in particular amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. It has over 300 articles in peer-reviewed international journals and more than 700 papers. He is a member of the editorial board of 4 international magazines. For four years he was an Executive Member of the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology and President of the International Clinical Neurophysiology Society. He is a directing member of the master's / doctoral program in Neurosciences and member of the executive council of the Doctoral Program NeurULisbon. He was honored in 2015 with the Roberto Schwabe Award from the American Association of Clinical Neurophysiology and in 2016 with the International Alliance for ALS / MND Forbes Norris Award.
Optimizing Electromagnetic Stimulation of the Brain and Spinal Cord: a combined modelling and experimental approach.
Sofia Fernandes
 
Bsc. in Physics and a MSc. in Astrophysics from the Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa. With a growing interest in health sciences, she completed a BSc. in Physiotherapy in 2009 in the Escola Superior de Tecnologia da Saúde de Lisboa.
As a physiotherapist, she developed a growing interest on the mechanisms of motor dysfunctions and neurodegenerative diseases. This led her to enrol in a PhD programme in Neurosciences in 2013 at the Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Lisboa. Her training in Physics and Physiotherapy was the main motivation for her PhD research: the study of non-invasive application of direct currents for neuromodulation of spinal neural networks.
The research presented here was developed under a scholarship from Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia, at the Institute of Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering (IBEB) and the Institute of Molecular Medicine (iMM), from the University of Lisbon.
Findings of human nerve action potentials obtained with the modulation of the stimulus shape
Pedro Pereira
 
Pedro Pereira is a clinical neurologist with a special interest in neurophysiology. He was enrolled on the exploration of the mechanisms and clinical significance of sensory double peak potentials as a base for his Master’s degree thesis in Neurologic Electrodiagnosis (University of Barcelona), completed in 2015. He is currently finishing is sub-specialization on clinical neurophysiology at the Centro Hospitalar Universitário do Porto. As part of this program he is working in threshold tracking techniques at the Prof. Mamede de Carvalho lab in Instituto de Medicina Molecular João Lobo Antunes.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and Neuropsychiatry
Albino Maia
 
Albino Oliveira Maia completed a medical degree at Universidade do Porto, and a doctorate in neuroscience, developed at Duke University, under the supervision of Profs. Miguel Nicolelis and Sidney Simon. After returning to Portugal, Albino trained in adult psychiatry at Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Ocidental, where the University Department of Psychiatry of NOVA School of Medicine is based. During residency, he was engaged in postdoctoral training at the Champalimaud Neuroscience Programme, under the supervision of Prof. Rui Costa, and completed a master’s degree in public health at the Harvard School of Public Health, in Boston, where he also trained in non-invasive brain stimulation with Prof. Alvaro Pascual-Leone. Currently, Albino is director of the Neuropsychiatry Unit at the Champalimaud Research and Clinical Centre, and Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience at NOVA Medical School.
