Description

Edited by internationally acclaimed experts in the field, this authoritative 2-volume Gold Standard comprehensively covers the neurobiology and diseases of the peripheral nervous system. It encompasses neurobiology, clinical neurophysiology, molecular genetics, and clinical diagnosis and management. The 4th Edition has been rewritten and updated to provide a fresh account of all subjects, with an emphasis on new information about cell biology, genetics, proteomics, clinical manifestations, and new treatments. And, a user-friendly organization allows readers to quickly find specific information, or access more in-depth coverage when needed.

Key Features

  • Provides authoritative, in-depth information on neurobiology and diseases of the peripheral nervous system.
  • Presents complete coverage of development - anatomy - physiology - pharmacology -special testing (nerve conduction and EMG), autonomic testing, and testing of impairment and disability - and the diagnosis, management, and outcomes for peripheral neuropathies.
  • Includes information on epidemiologic survey and pharmaceutical industry trials, with coverage of the complications of diabetes mellitus and other metabolic diseases
