Overview

Clinical Applications of Human Neuroscience: A Laboratory Guide is a succinct and clinically relevant guide for learning how to interpret and understand findings elicited on clinical examination. The guide offers a review of essential information on neurological examinations, perfectly blended with a structured set of clinically relevant exercises demonstrating the use and application of basic neuroanatomic and neurophysiologic information in the performance and interpretation of exam results. Dr. Michael F. Nolan organized Clinical Applications of Human Neuroscience around the basic elements of the neurological examination: sensory systems, motor systems, reflexes, and cranial nerves with information that is useful in both performing the exam and interpreting the elicited findings. The exercises inside are designed as group activities, offering the opportunity for students to discern that most findings in clinical examinations are characterized by a range of responses in both normal individuals and persons with neurological abnormalities. Inside Clinical Applications of Human Neuroscience, each chapter includes a series of neuroscience review questions that focus on the anatomical and physiological principles necessary to interpret exam findings. Also included are application exercises, modeled on the neurological examination, which directly link the basic principles with their clinical application. Clinical Applications of Human Neuroscience: A Laboratory Guide is a one-of-a-kind reference perfect for physical therapist students, clinicians, medical students, and other health professionals involved in the evaluation and treatment of individuals with neurologic disorders.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Overall, this is a useful tool for students who have to learn how to evaluate and treat different components of the nervous system.  It is formatted in a very organized way so that chapters can be incorporated into classes at appropriate stages.”

Reviewer: Michelle Finnegan, DPT, OCS, MTC, CMTPT, FAAOMPT(Bethesda Physiocare)
Description: This laboratory guide details different learning activities related to neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and the neurological examination.
Purpose: The intent is to assist students in understanding the nervous system and acquiring the skills to evaluate the function of the nervous system. The group activities facilitate proficiency at performing the proper tests and help students recognize what an abnormal finding is, since the laboratory sessions are typically performed on healthy subjects. It is important for students to develop competency and proficiency in these skills so they can be effective in the clinical setting.
Audience: The audience is students in a variety of healthcare professions that require training in the nervous system, such as physical therapy, neurology, and neurosurgery, as well as medical students and residents. This book is most appropriate for use in the classroom setting, particularly since it involves group activities. It also is appropriate as a supplement to the material taught about the evaluation and treatment of the nervous system. It does not function well as a standalone book because the answer section for each chapter does not include any definitions for the terms used. Neither are there any details or explanations for many of the activities for group work. Although explanations are not appropriate for all of them, many could be supplemented with a brief description of what to look for and what should be done. If this were included, it would be easier for practitioners to use this book to review information that they may not use often or need to brush up on.
Features: The book is well organized. Sections are geared to the sensory and motor systems, reflexes, cranial nerves, and mental status. Chapters are consistently formatted with a neuroscience review followed by an application section. An answer key addressing most of the concepts in the chapters appears at the end of the book. The only drawback to the book, as noted, is that the answer key section lacks some answers or explanations. Although explanations for some of the group activities may be challenging, general guidelines are possible. Having this feature would allow the book to be used by practicing clinicians as a form of reassessment and review. As formatted, the book needs to be used with other teaching materials. For the most effective use, an instructor is required to confirm that laboratory activities are being done correctly.
Assessment: Overall, this is a useful tool for students who have to learn how to evaluate and treat different components of the nervous system. It is formatted in a very organized way so that chapters can be incorporated into classes at appropriate stages.
