With this 11th edition, Clinical Neurology enters its fourth decade of publication. Its goal remains to provide students, residents, and practitioners with an introduction to neurology that is clear, informative, and current. To this end, the approach is problem-oriented, and the text has been updated to reflect new aspects of pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment.
Recent advances covered in this edition include new developments in neurogenetics, pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders, and treatment of neurologic infections, migraine, cluster headache, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, spinal muscular atrophy, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and stroke.
