Overview

This book presents a broad yet focused treatment of central topics in the field of clinical neurophysiology. The volume was inspired by the clinical neurophysiology lecture series at Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center and Rhode Island Hospital. Much like the lecture series, this book is designed to acquaint trainees with the essential elements of clinical neurophysiology. Each chapter is written by leading and respected clinical neurophysiologists.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"Each chapter in this four-part volume is written by clinical neurophysiologists and aimed at those engaged in neurophysiology training and neurology residents." (Times Higher Education, May, 2008)

"This multi-author textbook was developed from a teaching hospital lecture series for clinical neurophysiology trainees. It provides a broad and basic overview of neurophysiology which is also a good introduction to the field for … neurologists. … I would certainly recommend it to anyone wanting an approachable introduction to clinical neurophysiology." (Anna Basu, European Journal of Paediatric Neurology, Issue 12, December, 2008)
