Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: This compendium of neurophysiology emphasizes major aspects of applied neurophysiology and the implications in the care of neurological and neurosurgical patients.
Purpose: The purpose is to address different aspects of modern neurophysiology and the possible clinical applications of major discoveries in the field. The author meets these objectives.
Audience: The audience is mostly composed of neurologists, neurophysiologists, neurosurgeons, and professionals in the midst of their training.
Features: The book's 54 chapters provide an updated and yet simple approach to complex and current neurophysiological problems. As in most neurophysiology books, basic neuroanatomical and neuro-embryological concepts are spread throughout the first few chapters. Good illustrations and up-to-date references populate the book from beginning to end. The important topic of nervous system regulation is well described in a chapter of its own and more complex concepts are further explained throughout the rest of the book. Reference to clinical topics is scattered but enough for a book of this kind. The book is unique in its presentation and provides a compilation of the available literature.
Assessment: This is an important book for any neuroscience library. Readers will benefit from reading it from beginning to end.
