This illuminating book clarifies controversial topics in challenging and often confusing areas of neurology for all who are interested in clinical neuroscience. It provides an organized approach to neurological conditions such as amnesic syndrome, aphasia, agnosia and apraxia, it includes previously unpublished data on grasp reflex and Wernicke disease is presented. Written by an internationally renowned author, the book draws on his extensive personal experience to orient neurological clinicians to a variety of conditions by putting less accessible literature into context with recent advances and information from interviews undertaken throughout his career. This book will appeal to general and specialist neurologists, nurse practitioners, physician's assistants and those training to specialise in neurology.
