Overview

Appropriately select, implement, and interpret electrodiagnostic tests to identify a full range of central and peripheral nervous system disorders with Aminoff’s Electrodiagnosis in Clinical Neurology! Covering everything from basic principles to the latest advances in electrodiagnosis, this medical reference book helps you make optimal use of this powerful but complex diagnostic modality in compliance with regulatory and professional standards, so you can diagnose patients accurately and initiate effective treatment and management strategies.

• Deepen your understanding of the principles, scope, limitations, diagnostic importance, prognostic relevance, and complications for each technique.
• Visually grasp the technical and practical aspects of electrodiagnostic tests with almost 800 charts, figures, and tables.
• Rely on the knowledge, experience, and perspective of renowned expert Dr. Michael J. Aminoff and an international team of contributors comprised of a virtual "who’s who" of clinical neurophysiology.

• Keep up with developments in the field through significant updates, includingnew chapters on Artifacts and Normal Variants in the Electroencephalogram; Microneurography; Clinical Applications of Nerve Excitability Testing; Ultrasound of Muscle and Nerve; The Blink Reflex and Other Brainstem Reflexes; Visual Evoked Potentials,Electroretinography and Other Diagnostic Approaches to the Visual System; and Magnetic Stimulation in Clinical Practice and Research.

• Access information on the go from your laptop or mobile device via expertconsult.com, featuring fully searchable text, and links to PubMed.
• Meet regulatory and professional standards and apply best practices with state-of-the-art guidance (for both non-specialists and specialists) emphasizing the clinical applications of each electrodiagnostic technique.
• Get easily actionable information and avoid mistakes with electrophysiologic findings integrated into the clinical context in which they are obtained.

You cannot practice clinical neurophysiology without Aminoff.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is a comprehensive review of the latest understanding of neurophysiology techniques and how neurophysiology relates to clinical function. This edition continues to delight and impress. The topics and updates are spot on. This is an essential title that all neurologists and neuroscience professionals must have on their bookshelves." - Joseph I Sirven, MD(Mayo Clinic Arizona) Doody 5 star rating!

"Aminoff’s Electrodiagnosis in Clinical Neurology has become known as the classic textbook of electrodiagnostic methodology…The list of collaborators reads like a Who’s Who of clinical neurophysiology. Electrodiagnosis in Clinical Neurology belongs in every clinical neurophysiology laboratory and should be easily accessible to residents and students. Academic neurologists and physiatrists and those in clinical practice - both those who use these techniques and those who simply refer their patients for such studies - should find this text a valuable reference source as well." - JAMA, September 2005

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joseph I Sirven, MD (Mayo Clinic Arizona)
Description: This sixth edition of a well-known classic surveys all aspects of clinical neurophysiological techniques. It authoritatively examines how neurophysiology tests can aid in the understanding of the nervous system and, more importantly, how neuropathology presents on these studies.
Purpose: It is a comprehensive review of the latest understanding of neurophysiology techniques and how neurophysiology relates to clinical function.
Audience: The book is intended for clinical neurologists and all professionals who work in the clinical neurosciences. Although written at a professional level, the material is easy to follow and grasp due to a well-organized layout, numerous, well-placed figures, and helpful tables. The editors and authors are leaders in their respective fields.
Features: Divided into six sections that serve to both organize and update various techniques, the book starts off with an introduction, then covers electroencephalography and magnetoencephalography, electromyography and nerve conduction studies, evoked potentials, vestibular function tests, and electrophysiology in special situations.
Assessment: This edition continues to delight and impress. The topics and updates are spot on. This is an essential title that all neurologists and neuroscience professionals must have on their bookshelves.

Meet the Author

Dr. Michael J. Aminoff is an internationally recognized, board-certified neurologist and clinical neurophysiologist who works at UCSF Medical Center and specializes in Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, holding an endowed chair in Parkinson’s disease research. Aminoff was educated in England, graduating with honors from University College in London in 1962 and as a physician from University College Hospital Medical School in 1965. He completed postdoctoral training in various London teaching hospitals, but especially at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in Queen Square, London, and at its affiliated Institute of Neurology, where his research on spinal physiology gained him an MD degree (an advanced research thesis in the UK). He joined UCSF Medical Center in 1974, becoming a full professor in 1982; the title of distinguished professor was conferred on him in 2010. In 2000, he was awarded a doctorate in science (an advanced doctorate in the Faculty of Science) from the University of London. He has received numerous awards including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine (2006) and the A.B.Baker Award from the American Academy of Neurology (2007). He was the editor-in-chief of Muscle and Nerve, a major neuroscience journal for 10 years; serves on the editorial boards of several other medical and scientific journals; and has authored nearly 250 research publications as well as numerous books. Dr. Aminoff is also editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia of Neurological Sciences and series editor of the multivolume Handbook of Clinical Neurology (Elsevier).
