Clinical Neurophysiology of Infancy, Childhood, and Adolescence book cover

Clinical Neurophysiology of Infancy, Childhood, and Adolescence

This one-of-a-kind reference is unique in its exclusive devotion to the clinical neurophysiology of children. Written by a stellar group of recognized authorities, it blends classical electrophysiological techniques such as EEG, EMG, and nerve conduction studies with today's most cutting-edge methods, including magnetic stimulation and magnetoencephalography. The result is the first comprehensive review of all clinical neurophysiological techniques used to treat children with neurological disorders. This stand-alone text is essential to anyone performs or interprets neurophysiologic tests on children.
