Current understanding of neurological disease has been evolving over the past 150 years. With the increasing and earlier sub-specialization of neurology trainees, and their variable exposure to higher academic study, there is little opportunity to put this development into a historical context as a whole. Understanding the 'evidence-base', or appreciating the lack of it in some cases, is an important part of training but this is rarely presented in a palatable, entertaining form. Part of the Landmark Papers in series, this book brings together the ten most important papers for each sub-speciality within neurology, covering the full range of major neurological conditions. Papers have been selected by leading international experts, who not only summarize what each paper showed, but place them into a wider context that makes a coherent story of how their sub-speciality has developed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The editors wisely chose a rigorous structure, involving 13 pages and 4 systematic sections: background, methods, results and conclusions/discussion... Despite the number of authors, the style is coherent, thereby helping readers to access information without having to read the entire book. * Olivier Walusinski, European Neurology (Issue 76, 2016) *
The format is excellent and provides a clear and organised approach enabling the reader to rapidly analyse each article. Specifically, the comments and critiques about the strengths and weaknesses of each study are of great value to the reader, giving an understanding of the study transcendence. . . this book is strongly recommended for all neurologists and professionals working in the field. * Jose Manuel Matamala, Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry *
...the contributors and editors did a marvelous job with the daunting task of distilling a rich body of literature spanning multiple centuries. This book is well worth the read, as an excellent and inspiring review of the huge strides that have been made in the field of neurology in the last few centuries. * Carrie Grouse, MD, World Neurology *
The authors choice papers are very influential, if not the most influential in the development of concepts in each field... The way of critical appraisal of these landmark papers in the book is valuable in that it will inspire neurologists and neuroscientists to explore the unknown and generate more landmark papers in the future. * Yue Huang, University of New South Wales *
