The Oxford American Handbook of Neurology is a practical, quick-reference guide for use on the ward and in the clinic. It includes information on neurological assessment and common presentations and disorders, including sleep disorders, neurotrama, and neurosurgery. Numerous neuro-imaging studies and diagrams supplement concise, to-the-point text. The book concludes with an appendix of frequently used scales and indices. It should find a place in the hands of all those caring for neurological patients.
