Description:

The New Edition of this respected reference delivers complete, practical guidance on current electrodiagnostic techniques and their clinical applications for investigating problems of both the central and peripheral nervous systems. Completely revised and updated, this 5th Edition provides state-of-the-art knowledge on electroencephalography, electromyography, nerve conduction studies, evoked potentials, polysomnography, and electronystagmography.

Review:

"It is a comprehensive review of the latest understanding of neurophysiology techniques and how neurophysiology relates to clinical function. This edition continues to delight and impress. The topics and updates are spot on. This is an essential title that all neurologists and neuroscience professionals must have on their bookshelves." - Joseph I Sirven, MD(Mayo Clinic Arizona) Doody 5 star rating! "Aminoff's Electrodiagnosis in Clinical Neurology has become known as the classic textbook of electrodiagnostic methodology.The list of collaborators reads like a Who's Who of clinical neurophysiology. Electrodiagnosis in Clinical Neurology belongs in every clinical neurophysiology laboratory and should be easily accessible to residents and students. Academic neurologists and physiatrists and those in clinical practice - both those who use these techniques and those who simply refer their patients for such studies - should find this text a valuable reference source as well." - JAMA, September 2005

Author Biography:

Dr. Michael J. Aminoff is an internationally recognized, board-certified neurologist and clinical neurophysiologist who works at UCSF Medical Center and specializes in Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, holding an endowed chair in Parkinson's disease research. Aminoff was educated in England, graduating with honors from University College in London in 1962 and as a physician from University College Hospital Medical School in 1965. He completed postdoctoral training in various London teaching hospitals, but especially at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in Queen Square, London, and at its affiliated Institute of Neurology, where his research on spinal physiology gained him an MD degree (an advanced research thesis in the UK). He joined UCSF Medical Center in 1974, becoming a full professor in 1982; the title of distinguished professor was conferred on him in 2010. In 2000, he was awarded a doctorate in science (an advanced doctorate in the Faculty of Science) from the University of London. He has received numerous awards including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine (2006) and the A.B.Baker Award from the American Academy of Neurology (2007). He was the editor-in-chief of Muscle and Nerve, a major neuroscience journal for 10 years; serves on the editorial boards of several other medical and scientific journals; and has authored nearly 250 research publications as well as numerous books. Dr. Aminoff is also editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia of Neurological Sciences and series editor of the multivolume Handbook of Clinical Neurology (Elsevier).
