The main clinical sections are set out in the context of typical referral problems, showing how the appropriate sequence of investigations and their interpretation lead to correct diagnosis and management. As well as the basic fundamentals of
neurophysiology in clinical practice, Clinical Neurophysiology provides detailed cover of many special new areas of clinical value. There are substantial sections on many of the newer techniques including small fibre electromyography, qualitative sensory
testing, intra-operative monitoring of evoked potentials and the development of knowledge-based systems. With contributions from internationally recognised experts in their fields, this is an up-to-date survey, rigorously edited, which will serve as a
reference for many years to come. A co-ordinated and well-structured text, which is beautifully presented and profusely illustrated. Its comprehensive and integrated approach will appeal not only to clinical neurophysiologists and technicians, but also
to neurologists, paediatrians and general physicians.
