  • 2. Many more examples of neuroimaging(PET scans will illustrate functional changes of the brain during stroke and epileptic seizure. Many CT scans showing the various array of brain tumor entities.)
  • 3. More tables--detailing salient diagnostic features and differential diagnoses
  • 4. New chapter on molecular mechanisms of disease and molecular and genetic diagnostic techniques
  • 5. More comprehensive and current chapters on neuromuscular and peripheral nerve disorders
  • 6. More graphics to offset dense appearance of current edition--Will include many new figures depicting nerve/muscle innervations and synaptic tangles that will aid in the understanding of disease.
  • 7. Inclusion of second-color. Used didactically to highlight EEG tracings and molecular pathways of disease.
Key Features:
  • 1. Most cohesive and consistent approach to clinical management--Still considered the most readable book in the literature.
  • 2. Very scholarly approach--Provides reader with a very thorough overview of each and every neurologic illness
  • 3. Not an eclectic reference--a committed, opinionated stance is taken on each topic.
