Foundations for Clinical Neurology presents basic principles of neurology in a user-friendly way for practicing neurologists as well residents, fellows, and students. Written in a clear and concise format, this book will perfectly complement the "traditional" neurology textbook. This volume on neurology is divided in to three primary sections. The first section "Practicing Neurology" covers bedside investigation, diagnosis, imaging techniques, and therapeutics; Section 2, "Topics in Neurologic Disease" reviews subjects in neurologic disease that are often overlooked but are very important; and the third section, "Perspectives" provides insight in to how we talk, think, and develop concepts in neurology. With understanding of the evolution of neurologic concepts, the terminology and classifications used by neurologists, and the methodologies used to prove cause of disorder and disease, the practicing neurologist can provide the most effective care. Topics discussed in Foundations for Clinical Neurology include...- Verbal and nonverbal communication, especially during the history-taking portion of a neurologic examination; -How to be effective and avoid common pitfalls in the neurologic exam; -Difficulties in applying diagnostic criteria and formulating diagnoses; and -Advantages of using CT or MRI scanning in various clinical situations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Foundations for Clinical Neurology is an erudite and informative book filled with the anecdotes and wisdoms of a keenly observant neurologist of vast clinical experience. It touches on many subjects of interest to the clinical neuroscientist. Dr. Laureno is widely read and has an inquisitive mind. He muses over how the ontology and phylogeny of the nervous system produces the wraparound course of the radial and peroneal nerves, how notochord remnants relate to degenerative disc disease, how bipedalism leads to meralgia paresthetica, why we hiccup and why alligators dont get dizzy. The book is filled with the clinical wisdom and aphorisms of such luminaries as Maurice Victor, Asa Wilborn, Jerome Posner, Joseph Foley, James Corbett, David Zee, Miller Fisher and Raymond Adams. I wish that Dr. Laureno had written this book years ago; I would have been a better neurologist for reading it. * William W. Campbell, Department of Neurology, Uniformed Services University *
Neurologists like pearls and this book is a necklace. Each chapter is filled with helpful hints and historical notes gleaned from mentors, friends and experiences over a thoughtful career. It is both a fun and educational read. * Mark Hallett, Human Motor Control Section, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, Bethesda, MD *
Foundations for Clinical Neurology is a satisfying immersion into the neurology culture. Laureno astutely considers the practiced approach to the patient (and flustered family) at the bedside, the subjectivity of examination, the benefits of organization, the fading eponym, the insufficient rating scales and ever changing terminology down to the single protein. Symmetry and asymmetry, disproportionality, all those crossed fibers, causality, problems in localization and how MRI has changed everything are discussed with verve. Readers will find a great exposure of the stigmata of neurology. Laureno does not shy away from iatrogenic neurology as a result of doing too much or too little. There are many remembrances of times past with omnipresent mentor musings?will we still have those tomorrow? An engaging, good-natured work that takes us beyond the traditional textbook and invites us to rethink what we do. * Eelco F.M. Wijdicks, Professor of Neurology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN *
