This 7th edition of Dejong’s The Neurological Examination offers practitioners and residents of Neurology an in-depth discussion of neurologic exams that will not be found anywhere else.
Without abandoning classic concepts and science, this definitive source on neurologic examination techniques has been streamlined and updated. The text integrates details of neuroanatomy and clinical diagnosis in an easy-to-read format. Anatomical and exam illustrations help ensure proper technique. Plus, illustrative cases and tables summarize differentials and list clinical findings. With this book as their guide, readers will truly understand the anatomical underpinnings of examination techniques.
• Four-color design • Updated figures and references • Text is supplemented by helpful boxes that highlight key points • When available, evidence-based medical insights are incorporated in assessing the value of specific tests
RECENTLY REVIEWED “In summary, the updated edition represents a worthwhile source of evaluated, evidence-based insights into up-to-date clinical neurological examination and valuable specific tests helping to ensure proper techniques in neurological diagnosis.” – European Journal of Neurology Volume 21, Issue 1 January 2014 Page e7.
“Most of us in practice will appreciate the balance of anatomy and pathophysiology here, as we are typically consulting such texts…” “This textbook, however, can play an important role in medical education at all levels.” Book Review: Breaking Down Neurophobia, Posted on January 27, 2014 By Sarah Matteson Kranick, MD, World Neurology
This book discusses the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of infections of the orbit and periorbital region and is written by experts in the fields of ophthalmology, oculoplastic surgery, otolaryngology, neurosurgery, and radiology. Infections of the orbit can be challenging to diagnose and manage. With the changing microbiology that has occurred over the years, as well as the introduction of new antibiotics, minimally invasive surgical approaches to the sinuses and orbits, and improved imaging techniques, it is often difficult for practitioners to stay current with the latest testing, medical treatments, and surgical approaches. Furthermore, as more ophthalmologists are joining hospital-based practices or managed care practices, they often feel uncomfortable when asked to manage these types of patients, either independently or in collaboration with other specialists such as ENT and neurosurgery. Even in many hospitals without ophthalmology coverage, where orbital cellulitis is cared for by otolaryngology and neurosurgery, these specialists also need to be current on the changing trends in managing orbital infections. Orbital Cellulitis and Periorbital Infections fills the need for a single-source reference for practitioners to turn to for comprehensive information regarding the diagnosis and management of orbital cellulitis.
In this book, each chapter is in-depth, yet can also serve as a quick-reference guide. Orbital Cellulitis and Periorbital Infections is an excellent resource for those in training as well as seasoned practitioners who need to be updated on the newest diagnostic and treatment techniques for orbital cellulitis and periorbital infections.
This book offers a practical tool for handling neuromuscular emergencies, and is divided by the main neuromuscular diseases on the basis of their anatomical and clinical location: diseases affecting the anterior horn of the spinal cord (tetanus), those that affect the nerve roots and nerves (SGB, multiple mononeuritis, porphyria), the neuromuscular junction (MG and botulism) and, lastly, muscle pathologies (rhabdomyolysis, malignant hyperthermia, periodic paralysis). It provides updated diagnostic/therapeutic protocols and decision-making algorithms for each pathology, and examines a range of scenarios on the basis of clinical cases. Emergencies in Neuromuscular Disease will be of interests for a wide variety of specialists including neurologist, neurophysiologists and anesthesiologists.
This volume describes different computational methods encompassing ligand-based approaches (QSAR, pharmcophore), structure-based approaches (homology modeling, docking, molecular dynamics simulation), and combined approaches (virtual screening) with applications in anti-Alzheimer drug design. Different background topics like molecular etiologies of Alzheimer’s disease, targets for new drug development, and different cheminformatic modeling strategies are covered for completeness. Special topics like multi-target drug development, natural products, protein misfolding, and nanomaterials are also included in connection with computational modeling of anti-Alzheimer drug development. In Neuromethods series style, chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your laboratory.
Cutting-edge and authoritative, Computational Modeling of Drugs Against Alzheimer’s Disease is a valuable resource for learning about the latest computational techniques used to study this disease.
Written by leading international experts in all relevant clinical and basic science disciplines, Dystonia 4 is a state-of-the-art review of recent progress in the understanding and treatment of the dystonias. It provides a comprehensive update on the many breakthroughs that have occurred in the five years since the highly acclaimed Dystonia 3 was published.
The therapeutics section features detailed discussions on botulinum toxin treatment and current surgical procedures. The book also includes a major section on recent advances in understanding the genetics of the dystonias. Other sections focus on pathophysiology, Oppenheim’s dystonia, PET and biochemical studies, and musician’s and other focal dystonias.

Pediatric neurology presents so many challenges unique to young patients that it is in many ways a very different discipline from adult neurology. To help readers address these challenges, the Handbook of Pediatric Neurology uses a handy pocket format and streamlined organization to address the management of hospital- and clinic-based pediatric neurological work-up, diagnosis, and management.
This practical handbook will appeal not only to pediatric neurologists, but also to pediatricians, adult neurologists and internal medicine physicians.
• Timely coverage helps readers keep pace with the rapidly changing diagnostic tools, medications, and interventions.
• Summary and outline format allows readers to access essential facts at a glance.
• Practical organization presents each category of disorder, along with a focused differential diagnosis and clear management guidelines.
• References provide guides to further investigation.

The new Sixth Edition of this award-winning classic prepares its users for delivering expert care in this most challenging nursing specialty. It addresses neuroanatomy, assessment, diagnostic evaluation, and management of the complete range of neurological disorders for which nurses provide patient care, including trauma, stroke, tumors, seizures, headache, aneurysms, infections, degenerative disorders, and peripheral neuropathies.
This edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect standards of care based on evidence-based practice. It now includes case studies, community nursing sections throughout, and increased coverage of normal pressure hydrocephalus, inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, and Creutzfeld-Jacob disease.
