Series: Handbook of Clinical Neurology

The first volume of The Handbook of Clinical Neurology under the editorship of George Bruyn and Pierre Vinken was published in 1968. In 1982, the series was brought to an interim conclusion with the publication of the cumulative index volume (Volume 44). By that stage, the Handbook had come to represent one of the largest scientific works ever published. It enjoys a high reputation in specialist media circles throughout the world. After the series was concluded in 1982, it was realized that an update of the material was imperative. Accordingly, a revised series was planned and published over the following years, concluding with the publication of another cumulative index to both series (Volume 76-78) in 2002. Since then, the need for a further new series, incorporating advances in the field, again become necessary. Professors Michael J. Aminoff, François Boller and Dick F. Swaab have with enthusiasm taken on the responsibility of supervising the preparation of a third series, the first volumes of which were published in 2003. Now, more than 110 volumes after the first published, the Handbook in Clinical Neurology series continues to have an unparalleled reputation for providing the latest foundational research, diagnosis, and treatment protocols essential for both basic neuroscience research and clinical neurology. Edited by: - Michael Aminoff, Distinguished Professor, Department of Neurology, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA. - Francois Boller, Professor of Neurology, Department of Neurology, George Washington University Medical School, Washington,   DC, USA. - Dick Swaab, Netherlands Institute for Brain Research, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
