A brand new edition of Essential Neurology brings the text fully up-to-date. This book is a core text for medical students and junior doctors, who want a comprehensive yet concise practical guide to clinical neurology. To make the book more readable and digestible, we have introduced colour into the text. This text provides clear explanations of the most common neurological and neurosurgical disorders. The most up-to-date clinical methods are covered to ensure students are learning the newest techniques. To enhance the readers' understanding of this subject more illustrations, line drawings and scans are incorporated into the text.

"...a new edition with a new first chapter that integrates the traditional pre-clinical and clinical phases to correspond to the new medical curriculum...with improved illustrations and updated and slightly condensed text."
