The Clinical Neurophysiology Primer

Humana Press, May 23, 2007 - Medical - 526 pages
The Clinical Neurophysiology Primer presents a broad yet focused treatment of central topics in the field of clinical neurophysiology. This volume was inspired by the clinical neurophysiology lecture series at Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center and Rhode Island Hospital, where faculty and trainees at these renowned teaching hospitals participate in a lecture series over the course of the academic year. Much like the lecture series, The Clinical Neurophysiology Primer is designed to acquaint trainees with the essential elements of clinical neurophysiology. Each chapter in this four-part volume is written by leading and respected clinical neurophysiologists. Part I presents introductory considerations such as basic electronics, basic CNS physiology, and volume conduction for clinical neurophysiology. Parts II and III attend to all aspects of electroencephalography (EEG) and electromyography (EMG), respectively. In Part IV, topics in fields related to clinical neurophysiology are emphasized, including autonomic testing, evoked potentials, sleep studies, and their applications. Fellows engaged in neurophysiology training, those pursuing more focused training in those areas, and neurology residents will all find this volume to be an indispensable reference.
