Preparing the reader for the written portion of the Neurology Board examination and the Residency In-Service Training Examination (RITE) of the American Academy of Neurology, this reference provides a comprehensive review of the most critical topics in neurology. With the abundance of neuropathology and neuroimaging figures and neuroanatomy and neurophysiology illustrations, readers will not need to refer to multiple sources for a comprehensive review to prepare for the Neurology Boards and in-service examination. Thorough coverage of material relevant to the Neurology Boards and in-service examinations was ensured by involvement of residents and fellows in writing of the text.
