Every practitioner in modern medicine is confronted daily with
neurologic symptoms, diagnoses, and clinical problems. Yet there is
scarcely any other medical specialty that is so fraught with
complexities and abstractions. This pocket atlas is designed to
provide a better, easier-to-understand visual guide on what the
reader needs to know about neurology. In a unique way, neurology is
made "visible" in the truest sense of the word. Coverage includes:
- The basic principles of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology
(structure of the CNS, peripheral nerves, stimulus transmission,
nerve conduction velocity, etc.) - Diagnostic methods and
procedures (clinical examinations, electrophysiologic techniques,
imaging studies, etc.) - Neurologic disorders including their
clinical manifestations, pathogenesis, and principles of treatment
These topics and more are covered in elaborately drawn,
meticulously labeled illustrations. The effective concept of
placing the illustrations opposite the descriptive text for a
particular subject has created word-and-picture units that combine
maximum teaching impact with an optimum density of information.
Neurologic relationships can be grasped literally "at a glance."
This pocket atlas is intended for medical students, physicians, and
other medical professionals (nurses, physical therapists,
occupational therapists, speech therapists) who could profit from a
visual guide to neurology.
