The Integrated Nervous System: A Systematic Diagnostic Case-Based Approach, Second Edition

 Neurology/Neurosurgery  Comments Off on The Integrated Nervous System: A Systematic Diagnostic Case-Based Approach, Second Edition
Jul 122018
 

This innovative textbook is modelled on problem-based learning. It bridges the gap between academic neuroanatomy and clinical neurology and effectively takes the reader from the classroom to the clinic, so that learning can be applied in practice.

This second edition has been updated and expanded to include many more clinical cases within both the book and the accompanying Wweb site. Significant additions include

  • abbreviated presentation of the history and neurologic examination of all the cases on the web site (now numbering over 50) within the text at the end of each of the clinical chapters.
  • new ‘maps’ — visual representations of the clinical motor, sensory and reflex findings.
  • the web site further expands the cases – presenting them in detail, and providing an ‘expert’ commentary to discuss the reasoning for the localization and etiological diagnosis.

This book and the associated Web site will be of practical value to all the professionals who deal with people who have neurological conditions, as well as being invaluable to medical students and residents. This includes physiatrists (rehabilitation medicine specialists), physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists, and nurses who specialize in the care of neurological patients. We think that this text will also be of value for family physicians and specialists in internal medicine and pediatrics, all of whom must differentiate between organic pathology of the nervous system and other conditions.
