Occupational and Environmental Neurology fills a gap in the clinical literature available to the neurologist and occupational medicine physician. This volume meets a critical need for clinical guidelines for determination of whether neurological dysfunction in a worker is caused by a naturally occurring condition or is secondary to local exogenous working conditions. The textbook originated as a course at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology and has been developed into an important resource in this rapidly evolving field of medicine. A readable reference, the book is written by academic clinical neurologists with experience in occupational medicine. The authors discuss typical neurological problems, including movement disorders and peripheral neuropathy, traumatic head and spinal cord injuries, cumulative trauma disorders, neurological dysfunctions unique to performing artists, and the neuroepidemiology of some naturally occurring disorders linked to work place exposure. - Occupational and Environmental Neurology
