Expertise of the participating organization
The Belgrade group has a strong background and interest in diagnosis, clinical differential diagnosis, genetics, neurophysiology, neuropsychology (particularly, cognitive domains), and treatment of parkinsonism, including MSA patients. The recent studies primarily focused on genetic background and neuroimaging of atypical parkinsonism. The unique advantage of the group is the large gravitating population of patients with various movement disorders.
