Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the fourth edition of the editor's multiauthored introductory textbook on electrodiagnosis in neurology.
Purpose: The book gives a comprehensive and complete introduction to the important areas of clinical neurophysiology including electroencephalography, electromyography, polysomnography, and evoked responses.
Audience: It is aimed primarily at neurologists who use electrodiagnostic methods in their clinical work.
Features: The book provides an excellent introduction to EEG including long-term monitoring, invasive monitoring, and intra-operative monitoring. The chapters on electromyography and nerve conduction studies are clear and readable. A separate section covers all the important evoked responses including motor, visual, auditory, somatosensory, and event-related. The final chapters cover electronystagmography, polysomnography, use of electrodiagnosis in the ICU, and brain death.
Assessment: This remains one of the best introductory texts to clinical neurophysiology including EEG, EMG, and evoked responses. The book is clear, to the point, and terse without being superficial. This is a valuable book that is strongly recommended for both neurology residents and neurophysiology fellows. Although the advanced neurophysiology fellow will need to do further reading in both EEG and EMG, this is a highly recommended book for neurology residents doing their EMG and EEG rotations.

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).
