About

Pietro Baldelli graduated in Biological Science at the University of Genova, he accomplished his PhD studies in Cellular Physiology and Neuroimmunophysiology at the University of Torino and he had a position of Associate Researcher at the Dept. of Molecular Physiology and Biophysic, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX. He came back to Italy with an independent Researcher position at the National Institute for Physics of the Matter, Dept. of Neuroscience, University of Torino and he is actually Consultant Scientist at the IIT and Associate  Professor at the Dept. of Experimental Medicine, University of Genova, where he teaches courses on Human Physiology, Neurophysiology and Electrophysiological Technologies. His main subjects of investigation, in the last 15 years, have been the molecular mechanisms underlying both physiological and pathological processes of the neurotransmission that he has investigated at different levels, from the single synapse to the complexity of the neuronal network by using a combination of various electrophysiological approaches. He developed his research activities in collaboration with leading international scientists, acquiring a recognized experience of quantal analysis in synaptic transmission and plasticity. He has a strong biophysical and neurophysiological background, and a proved experience in the project management and coordination. Pietro Baldelli is author of 43 papers in refereed journals and many others in conference proceedings and books and he has been paper reviewer for: The Journal of Neuroscience, The American Journal of Physiology and The European Journal of Pharmacology

Projects

A common way to explain seizures is the disruption of the normal balance between excitatory and inhibitory input. Increasing evidence showed that epileptogenetic processes transform a normal neuronal network in a hyperexcitable network through multiple mechanisms of altered synaptic and intrinsic plasticity. Goal of our project is the elucidation of the electrophysiological and molecular mechanisms underlying altered plasticity at the basis of epileptogenesis.
