Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sean D. Ruland, DO (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This overview of clinical electrodiagnostic medicine starts with the basics and the experimental technical aspects of the topic, then outlines and briefly discusses the etiologies of the neuropathologic conditions based on their clinical categorization, and, finally breaks the topic down into its component parts based on anatomic localization. This is the third edition of a text that was originally published in 1978 and whose second edition appeared in 1987.
Purpose: The purpose, as stated in the preface to the first edition, is to summarize and "review the manner in which electromyography may be of value in the investigation of patients with neuromuscular disorders..." The preface to the third edition indicates it is intended to update the many neurophysiological advances that have occurred since the last edition and to increase the amount of clinical detail. These appear to be worthwhile objectives and seem to have been adequately met.
Audience: The book is targeted, according to the author, at both physicians who manage neuromuscular pathology and electrodiagnosticians. I feel, however, that this book lies somewhere in between. I also acknowledge what a monumental task it would be to be able to satisfy an audience encompassing both electromyographers and general neurology clinicians who also manage these disease entities. The author is certainly a credible authority in the field, having written many papers on aspects of this topic.
Features: It is up-to-date, as any new text should be. The references are pertinent. The illustrations are more or less the standard for this type of text.
Assessment: In my opinion, this is an up-to-date overview of this topic that is probably too technical for the general clinician and yet too superficial for the electrodiagnostician. There are no unique features to this book that distinguish it from others on the topic, aside from the fact that it may be one of the most current. The fact that it has been ten years since the second edition probably justifies its revision, however.

Journal of the American Medical Association
Dr Aminoff has done an excellent job in tying together the electrodiagnostic and clinical aspects of muscle and nerve physiology. I consider this to be one of the finest books available in clinical neurophysiology, appropriate for clinical or research neurologists, physiatrists, and neurophysiologists.

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).
