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.
