Since publication of the first edition of this highly successful book many astonishing advances have been made in clinical neurosciences. The authors have called upon experts from around the world to aid them update the entire book to ensure that the latest scientific evidence and material is included. There is a new chapter on sleep disorders. The chapter covering degenerative diseases of the nervous system has been expanded and subdivided into three main sections covering dementias, Parkinson’s disease and Parkinsonian syndromes, and hereditary ataxias. A new section on neuro-ophthalmology has also been added to the cranial neuropathies chapter.
This unique and comprehensive volume is practical and patient-oriented and the format of the first edition has been preserved. The structured text integrates presentation, pathology, radiology, diagnosis and treatment options. The second edition includes 400 new illustrations of the highest quality. The illustrations range from anatomical drawings to clinical photographs and pathology specimens, plus imaging using the latest techniques.
While emphasising the more common conditions, the book is intended as a major source for trainees and students in neurology, an accessible resource for course directors and educators, and a valuable reference for neurologists, radiologists and general physicians.

Reviews of the previous edition
Alluring from the first idle flick through its glossy pages, this new textbook makes a profound and immediate visual impact... the author's engaging keenness permeates the book and will undoubtedly project it into the neurological bestseller list Advances in Clinical Neuroscience & Rehabilitation
