Publisher Comments:

In everyday practice, do physicians really encounter symptoms and signs that reflect the difference between ligand-gated and voltage-gated ion channels? Or is it vital to know that a protein called tau binds to microtubules? For students of neurobiology, especially medical students, the dilemma often becomes, "How do you separate information that's crucial to clinical practice from information that's not?" The answer is right here in the pages of The Practice of Neural Science.

The companion volume to the new, fourth edition of Kandel, Schwartz, and Jessell's Principles of Neural Science, this engaging book bridges the gap between basic science and clinical medicine, emphasizing the real-world relevance of neurobiology to clinical decision-making.

Part I consists of a mostly neuroanatomical description of the neurological examination, while Part II contains 79 clinical vignettes, arranged systematically (for example, somatosensory of auditory impairment; disorders of consciousness or language) and linked to the corresponding parts of the Neurological Examination to reinforce learning.

Fully up to date with the latest thought and research on diagnostic procedures, and informed by in-depth clinical experience, The Practice of Neural Science expertly assists both students and clinicians in mastering the neurological examination and arriving at a sound diagnosis. Used in conjunction with Principles of Neural Science, this book provides a rock-solid foundation for state-of-the-art neurological practice.

Book News Annotation:

In a companion to the new fourth edition of Kandel, Schwartz, and Jessell's Principles of Neural Science, Brust (clinical neurology, Columbia U.) distinguishes for medical students which information is useful in actual practice and which can safely be relegated to references once the course is over. He describes the neurological examination from a neuroanatomical perspective, linking 79 clinical vignettes to its corresponding parts.
