Long copy (cont'd in long field): Clinical Neurophysiology: EMG, Nerve Conduction and Evoked Potentials is addressed to those who require understanding of the underlying scientific principles, proper recording techniques, and the development and characteristics of electrical potentials in normal subjects and the ways in which these are affected by physical factors or disease. This foundation will enable the reader to interpret a wide range of clinical problems on the basis of first principles.
PART I - ORIGINS AND TECHNIQUES: Fundamentals of neurophysiology; Techniques; PART II: ELECTROMYOGRAPHY AND NERVE CONDUCTION: Introduction; Anatomy and function of peripheral nerves; Clinical measurements of nerve conduction; Electromyography: normal and pathological findings; Nerve conduction studies and EMG smapling; Specific clinical requests; Assessment of autonomic function; Pelvic floor neurophysiology; Quantitative sensory testing; Analysis of electromyographic activity; Single fibre electromyography; Knowldege-based expert systems; PART III: EVOKED POTENTIALS: Definitions and introductory remarks; Methods and instrumentation; Recording procedures; Normal findings by modality; Abnormal waveforms and diagnostic yield of evoked
potentials; Evoked potential diagnostic strategies; Analysis of evoked potentials; Index.
