Overview

This one-of-a-kind reference is unique in its exclusive devotion to the clinical neurophysiology of children. Written by a stellar group of recognized authorities, it blends classical electrophysiological techniques such as EEG, EMG, and nerve conduction studies with today's most cutting-edge methods, including magnetic stimulation and magnetoencephalography. The result is the first comprehensive review of all clinical neurophysiological techniques used to treat children with neurological disorders. This stand-alone text is essential to anyone performs or interprets neurophysiologic tests on children.

• Provides detailed correlations between clinical features and neurophysiological studies, as well as vital information on both common and rare neurological disorders.
• Includes practical guidelines on interpreting neonatal and pediatric EEGs.
• Details the use of magnetoencephalogrphy in the localization of cerebral function.
• Features intracranial EEG monitoring in the evaluation of children with medically intractable epilepsy.
• Explores the neurophysiology of language and behavioral disorders in children.
• Addresses intraoperative evoked potentials as a means of gathering subtle clinical information.
• Discusses the interrelation of DNA analysis and clinical neurophysiology in the diagnosis of chronic neuromuscular disorders of childhood.
• Examines the neurophysiological root of frequently encounter pediatric sleep disorders.
• Presents concise descriptions of the neurological disorders in which clinical neurophysiological testing is valuable.
• Organizes information in an easy-to-find, clinically relevant manner.
