A fusion of modern neuroscience with traditional neurology that will inform and intrigue trainee and experienced neurologists alike - from the world-renowned National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery and UCL Institute of Neurology, based in Queen Square, London
Modern neuroscience has penetrated exciting and diverse frontiers into the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological disease. Clinical neurology, whilst greatly enhanced by dramatic advances in molecular biology, genetics, neurochemistry and physiology, remains deeply rooted in practical traditions: the history from the patient and the elicitation of physical signs.
Neurologists, neuroscientists and neurosurgeons working at Queen Square, and advised by an international editorial team, have combined their expertise and experience to produce this unique text. The synthesis of clinical neurology with translational research provides a fresh perspective which is practical, multidisciplinary, translational, and integrative.
The blend of new science and proven practice underpins this creative approach towards investigating and improving the care of patients suffering from neurological diseases.
