To make the book more readable and digestible, we have introduced colour into the text. This text provides clear explanations of the most common neurological and neurosurgical disorders. The most up–to–date clinical methods are covered to ensure students are learning the newest techniques. To enhance the readers understanding of this subject more illustrations, line drawings and scans are incorporated into the text.
Another new addition is the inclusion of clinical cases with self–assessment questions at the end of every chapter. These help to clearly illustrate the clinical presentations of key neurological disorders.
Essential Neurology is ideal for medical students on neurology attachments and an excellent review text for the MRCP examination.
