Essential Revision Notes in Clinical Neurology – 1st edition
Neurological disorders account for 10% of consultations in primary care and 20% of acute hospital admissions, yet there is good evidence that ‘neurophobia’ is common among medical students lost in unnecessary detail. This has led to neurology’s long-established reputation as a difficult subject. This book is the antidote to neurophobia. It is divided into four sections: Section I introduces the reader to clinical neurology by summarising the basic aspects of a neurological consultation including history and examination; Section II covers neurological signs related to cranial nerves, motor and sensory system and peripheral nerve lesions; Section III comprises the major and common diseases such as headache, epilepsy, stroke, Parkinson’s disease and Multiple sclerosis; and Section IV addresses other main neurological problems. The scope of this book is limited to only the most fundamental principles and omits all superfluous detail – ideal for medical students needing a concise introduction to neurology and an overview for revision.
