Brain and Bannister's Clinical Neurology by
Call Number: WL100 B731 1992
Publication Date: 1992-03-19
This textbook emphasizes the fundamental attraction of neurology: the balance between clinical history, often with subtle psychological aspects; and knowledge of the basic anatomy and physiology of brain function. It clearly explains how to diagnose and treat common neurological disorders. Since the publication of the sixth edition, there have been extraordinary technical advances in neurology, most notably in the fields of molecular genetics and new imaging techniques. There are new sections on each of these topics. This volume also has a new chapter on the neurological complications of AIDS. Many new topics have been introduced and there have been major revisions to most chapters, particularly to those on vascular disease, the dystonias, Alzheimer's disease and dementia, parkinsonism, neuromuscular diseases, multiple sclerosis, and the neurological consequences of neoplasms. New material is included on extradural hematomas, the Lambert Eaton myasthenic syndrome, inflammatory myopathies, Huntington's disease, the Lesch-Nyhan syndrome, cerebral malaria, the anterior spinal artery syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating neuropathies, sarcoidosis, the MTPT parkinsonism model, multiple system atrophy, lipoidoses, and the Arnold-Chiari malformation.
