Overview

Whereas most textbooks of neurology approach the subject from either a symptomatic or a diagnostic standpoint, this dictionary focuses on some of the neurological signs which may be elicited through history-taking and physical examination. More than 600 structured and cross-referenced definitions are supplemented, where appropriate, with the neuroanatomical and neurophysiological basis of each sign. Hence the semiological value of signs is elucidated in a way which attempts to integrate clinical phenomenology with underlying neurobiology, thus guiding anatomical and pathological diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
This book will be of interest to all students of neurology, undergraduate and postgraduate, as well as more experienced clinicians, including general physicians and general practitioners, and members of ancillary professions who care for patients with neurological disease.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'...a great wealth of information has been amassed and collated and often complex topics distilled with consistent clarity. While partially concerned with objective physical signs, subjective symptoms of special anatomical of pathological significance are included, each has a semiological significance...The book's principal strength is its structured approach and the author's skill in achieving a succinct definition of each sign, a brief account of the clinical technique required for it to be elicited, a description of other neurological signs that may accompany the index sign and, where known, a brief account of its basis in terms of neuro-anatomy, pathophysiology, pharmacology and neuropathology.'
Brain, 126:2 (February 2003)
