Every chapter of this edition has been updated, and in many cases nearly completely rewritten to maintain the emphasis on the practical aspects of neurology while discussing the scientific underpinnings. The Ninth Edition is also enhanced by:
Important new content on the neurological examination and neuroanatomy
An increased number of full-color illustrations
Chapter outlines that provide a quick overview of each topic
Treatment protocols that reflect the most recent advances in the field
An emphasis on the neurological examination and history taking as the cornerstone of diagnosis
References that focus on practice-changing innovations
There is no better introduction to neurology as practiced on the wards and in an outpatient setting than this time-tested classic.
