This volume brings together a comprehensive accounting of the study of neurological disorders from ancient times to modern neurology. The evolution of neurological science is combined with ancillary developments in the discipline to provide clinicians with a state-of-the-art reference guide on such topics as brain damage and dysfunctions of the nervous system, including muscular dystrophy, epilepsy, aphasia, and alexia.
New treatments and recovery methods from redundancy to vicariation and neural transplantation are covered, along with conventional knowledge and modern best practices within the field.
Practitioners will find a resource that chronicles the small steps achieved by clinicians and scientists throughout the centuries. Breakthroughs born from older concepts will demonstrate how all types of research in the field of neurology can have great implications for the treatment and diagnosis in this ever-expanding field.
