The research interests of Michele Tagliati, MD, include the study of early and advanced therapeutics of Parkinson's disease, dystonia and other movement disorders. Tagliati pioneered the use of deep brain stimulation in Parkinson's and dystonia, and his work contributed advances in the definition of outcome predictors and therapeutic settings of DBS. He is currently involved in research on the role of nonmotor and nondopaminergic mechanisms in the pathophysiology of Parkinson's.
