Overview

Essentials of Clinical Neurophysiology is a primer of the basic principles and applications involved in neurophysiology, for the neophyte. In The Second Edition, Dr. Misulis has updated the guidelines for EEG and EP. Clinical and physiological correlates to slow waves are discussed in greater depth while electrophysiologic diagnosis of neuromuscular transmission disorders and myopathies are also expanded. The most recent information on focal seizure discharges has been added as well, and the reference section has been updated and extended. Ideal for studying for exams!

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Arlene N. Barr
This book covers the fundamentals of clinical neurophysiology: basic electronics, electroencephalograms, electromyograms, nerve conduction studies, evoked potentials, and polysomnography. In a book intended for the novice, the author has attempted to provide a single reference for the competent performance and interpretation of the electrodiagnostic procedures mentioned above. There is a niche for a succinct presentation of these sorts of material. A volume of just over 300 pages is too brief to achieve the author's objectives for all of the above-mentioned diagnostic procedures. Some generalizations made for the sake of brevity can be misleading to the beginner. The author is qualified for a presentation of this subject material. The book seems to be targeted for neurology and rehabilitation medicine residents. This is a book that is easy to read and well constructed. Illustrations are simple, well presented, and appropriate in number. The table of contents and index are both well designed. Although the references cited are pertinent, they are not comprehensive enough. This book is most appealing to students or residents. However, it is not detailed enough for those who have had any experience with the various diagnostic entities, because the discussions of clinical material are too brief and the discussions of basic electronics are disproportionally long in this particular context.
Booknews
A complement to more detailed texts, outlines the theory and practice of such neuro-diagnostic techniques as electroencephalography, electromyography with nerve conductions, evoked potentials, and polysomnography. For readers who are new to the field, or who would like a general survey of it. Reviews the basic electronics, describes the equipment, and summarizes the commonly used methods and the interpretation of them. Includes a glossary without pronunciation. Annotation c.
