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!
