This concise yet comprehensive textbook builds on the success of its three previous editions in helping medical students, junior doctors and practising physicians to acquire an improved understanding of the principles of neurology.
The fourth edition has been fully revised and updated to take into account new developments in the investigation and treatment of neurological disorders. It retains a clinical emphasis - the basic skills of history taking and neurological examination are paramount throughout. New for this edition is the expanded coverage of neurophysiology and motor neurone disease.
Authored and edited by leading figures in neurology, this will be an indispensable introduction to the field of clinical neurology, for use in training and study and in the clinical setting.
