Now in a new; larger format; this 5th edition of the classic Topical Diagnosis in Neurology: Anatomy; Physiology; Signs; Symptoms 5th edition provides the clear; integrated presentation of anatomy; functions; and disorders of the central nervous system and serves as a quick reference for practitioners and trainees alike. It elucidates the neuroanatomical pathways that lead to specific clinical syndromes; and demonstrates how solid anatomical knowledge combined with a thorough neurological examination can help localize a lesion and arrive at a diagnosis.
Features of the 5th Edition:
- An enlarged page design that showcases more than 400 detailed anatomic illustrations and MRI and CT images of the highest quality
- A logical; thematic structure; with useful summaries at the beginning of each chapter and color-coded section headings that enable readers to distinguish between neuroanatomical and clinical material at-a-glance
- An integrated; modern; and interdisciplinary approach to topical neurologic diagnosis; showing how knowledge of basic neuroanatomy and neurophysiology can be applied in the clinical setting
- A wide range of study aids and clinical correlations that support the emphasis on integrative medicine in the current medical school curriculum
- A collection of updated case studies; state-of-the-art imaging examples; and a new introduction to the principle components of the nervous system
Topical Diagnosis in Neurology; 5th Edition is an ideal reference for neuroscientists and neurologists who correlate neurologic diseases to anatomic location to complete a diagnosis or understand a clinical syndrome. It is also an essential tool for trainees and advanced students who need a solid grounding in key neurofunctional relationships.
