The Manual of Neurologic Signs provides users with a unique opportunity to expand their clinical experience and enhance their ability to elicit and recognize most of the common neurological signs, as well as a few rarities. The manual, with nearly 1,000 case videos, is simple and intuitive in its approach, and has been designed as a self-learning tool as well as the basis for tutorials and lectures.

Features Unique to the Manual of Neurological Signs Include:

· Five sections associated with each neurological sign, including a detailed description, associated signs, and comprehensive case reviews.
· Nearly 1,000 videos recorded over a span of 25 years of adult and pediatric neurological examinations enables users to fully understand signs through comprehensive demonstrations.
· Videos serve as a tool for self-learning as well as a tutorial in the classroom. With detailed descriptions and context for each case, yet no commentary, users are able to double-check their understanding of the relevant disorder.
· A "Beware" section gives insight to similar, but unrelated, signs that are often confused with the presenting disorder. In this way, the "Manual" guides readers to the correct diagnosis of the disease.
· Extensive footnotes offer contextual background that provides detailed historical features and the great clinicians whose work lead to the identification of the disorder.

The Manual of Neurological Signs is a clinical tool that demonstrates a wide variety of neurological signs and symptoms, as seen in teaching hospitals and clinics around the world. The videos cover patients in every age demographic thanks to the authors' expansive expertise and in many cases, the videos capture changes in signs and symptoms as the disease progresses over time. There is no commentary, so readers can form their own opinion of what is happening thus giving the illusion of being in the room observing the features that are demonstrated.
