Ambition, genius, thought, imagination, love, hate, greed and, above all, consciousness ourselves as alive and as part of our world -all this is somehow enabled by the brain. The brain is the person, and if it goes wrong, a person is ruined. This book is about part of what the brain does – a role of which many of us are hardly aware, but one that has ensured, the survival of mankind. Despite famine, drought, wars, cold, infections and hostile environments, we survive as a species – though not always as individuals.
Concise Neurology presents neurology content in a logical sequence within each of ten chapters. Virtually every topic of interest to clinicians is covered in one or two pages to facilitate efficient review of the core concepts in diagnosis and treatment for each syndrome or disease. The author has maintained a thematic unity across related pages, which allows for random reading to be almost as fruitful as sequential reading. For example, a reader who opens the "anticoagulation" page will find a capsulized review of the heparin, warfarin, and thrombolysis stroke trials and the evidence supporting the current therapeutic guidelines.
This book takes a novel approach to fundamental neurology that bridges the gap between the classroom and the patient encounter: it teaches students and residents how to arrive at a presumptive diagnosis in an efficient manner. Beginning with the initial approach to the neurologic patient, the book directs the reader in getting relevant information from the history and neurologic examination. A NeurAxis chart and a What Could the Problem Be? chapter help the reader make sense of the history and examination findings and quickly consider the diagnostic possibilities.

Vascular tumors and anomalies, trauma to the temporal bone, Meniere’s disease, as well as cerebellopontine lesions such as vestibular schwannoma and meningioma will be discussed with special emphasis on clinical applications.
The primary aim of Treating Nonepileptic Seizures: Therapist Guide is to equip physicians, psychologists, therapists, nurses, and other practitioners with a validated, step-by-step treatment for psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (NES) that can improve the lives of patients with this disabling disorder. Patients with NES frequently present in neurology, psychiatry, psychology, and emergency departments. The disorder has been documented in the medical literature for centuries, and much is known about the phenomenology, seizure characteristics, psychiatric comorbidities, neuropsychological testing, and psychosocial aspects in NES.
Bridging the gap between the peripheral and central nervous systems, the second edition of Neuroanatomical Basis of Clinical Neurology enriches understanding of neurological conditions through a conceptual approach to neuronal circuitry. The book retains the basic outline of contents from the first edition, integrating structural organization with pertinent clinical disorders, while reflecting the substantial growth and ever-changing information in neuroscienceAfter an introduction to the developmental and cellular aspects of the nervous system, the book discusses in depth the morphology and internal organization of the central nervous system.
Neurorehabilitation is an expanding field with an increasing clinical impact because of an ageing population. During the last 20 years neurorehabilitation has developed from a discipline with little scientific background, separated from other medical centers, to a medical entity largely based on the principles of ‘evidenced based medicine’ with strong ties to basic research and clinical neurology. Today neurorehabilitation is still a ‘work in progress’ and treatment standards are not yet established for all aspects of neurorehabilitation.
