Over the past several decades, advances in genetics, neuroimaging, neurophysiology, and other areas of neuroscience have provided new understanding of the underlying etiologies and mechanisms of these conditions as well as new opportunities for more accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.
This new edition builds upon the success of the first edition, with comprehensive scientific and clinical updates of all chapters. In addition, there are new chapters on hereditary spastic paraplegia, quantitative motor assessments, autoimmune disorders, and movement disorders in the developmental neuropsychiatric disorders ADHD, OCD, and autism.
Additional materials are provided on the latest in drug treatments, computer based strategies for genetic diagnosis, and helpful videos for phenomenology.
- Provides the only current reference specifically focused on childhood movement disorders- Investigates the underlying etiologies and mechanisms of these disorders- Completely revised and updated with new materials and a more disease-oriented approach- New coverage of genetics and movement disorders, immunology and movement disorders, and an introduction to the latest quantitative analysis- New videos of instructive and unusual childhood movement disorders- 2016 BMA Medical Book Awards Highly Commended in Neurology

Harvey S. Singer, M.D. is currently the Haller Professor of Pediatric Neurology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He graduated from Western Reserve University School of Medicine, did his pediatric training in Chicago and Cleveland, and his pediatric neurology residency at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, after which he remained on the faculty. Clinical research interests include movement disorders, especially Tourette syndrome, proposed autoimmune disorders, and stereotypic movements. His translational research-oriented laboratory focuses on autoimmune mechanisms in autism, PANDAS, the neurobiology of tics, and the pathophysiology of stereotypic movements in animal models. He has been the recipient of many federal and private grants. Dr. Singer has authored numerous original articles, chapters, and two books. He is the first recipient (2013) of the Child Neurology Society's Blue Bird Clinic Training Program Directors award.
