A practical, quick reference guide for use on the ward and in clinical settings, this is the essential handbook for neurologists in training and practice, and all those involved in the care of patients with neurological disorders. Covering the entire breadth of neurology, with chapters on neuroanatomy, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, and neurophysiology, it includes information on neurological assessment and common presentations and disorders. Containing a wealth of guidance, information, and invaluable clinical advice, it should find a place in the hands of all those caring for neurological patients.
