Overview

Neurology: A Queen Square Textbook is a remarkable fusion of modern neuroscience with traditional neurology that will inform and intrigue trainee and experienced neurologists alike.

Modern neuroscience has penetrated exciting and diverse frontiers into the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological disease. Clinical neurology, whilst greatly enhanced by dramatic advances in molecular biology, genetics, neurochemistry and physiology, remains deeply rooted in practical traditions: the history from the patient and the elicitation of physical signs.

Neurologists, neuroscientists and neurosurgeons working at Queen Square, and advised by an international editorial team, have combined their expertise and experience to produce this unique text. The synthesis of clinical neurology with translational research provides a fresh perspective which is

  • Practical
  • Multidisciplinary
  • Translational
  • Integrative

The blend of new science and proven practice underpins this creative approach towards investigating and improving the care of patients suffering from neurological diseases.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Having said that, this book is excellent . . . There is a very useful chapter on neuro-ophthalmology by Gordon Plant and colleagues . . . For the punting neurologist such as myself it is a useful addition to the bookshelf, for instant reference if the computer has crashed. Many of the chapters are highly readable." (Epilepsy & Behavior, 6 October 2010)
