Summary A thorough introduction to neurology. This concisely written text assumes no prior knowledge of neurology or neuroscience, yet provides the reader in a short time with a comprehensive overview of the subject. A sharp focus on the essentials makes this book ideal, not just for medical students in their first exposure to neurology, but also as a rapid and thorough review for postgraduate trainees in neurology and other disciplines, as well as for non-neurological specialists. The all-important clinical neurological examination receives particular emphasis throughout the book. Comprehension, not rote learning: subjects regularly appearing on examinations are presented in concise, logically ordered discussions that let the reader learn by understanding. Mindless rote memorization of jargon is unnecessary. Features an attractive and easy-to-follow format that speeds learning, many illustrations giving concrete form to complex subject matter, comprehensive tables summarizing important material and giving further details beyond the basic discussion in the text, CT and MR images providing the direct, visible link to clinical practice, a thumb index and multileveled text structure making information easily and rapidly accessible, written by two well-known and highly experienced clinical teachers. In writing this book, Professors Mumenthaler and Mattle have drawn on decades of clinical experience in neurology and continued their highly fruitful collaboration as acknowledged master teachers in the field.
