Neurology In Focus is aimed at all medical and health science students who require an introductory, low cost and highly illustrated guide to this specialty. The material is presented in double page spreads. The left-hand page has a synoptic and highly structured text (normally under the following headings: incidence; clinical features; differential diagnosis; management; prognosis). The right-hand page has a selection of four to six clinical photographs. Neurology In Focus is a convenient pocket size and therefore ideal for quick preparation before ward rounds. Each volume also includes self-assessment material, which is extremely helpful for preparation for examinations. Because of shorter hospital stays and more outpatient treatment, students are less likely to be able to see the full range of conditions on the ward - the books in this series help supply that deficit

"The In Focus series are useful 'trigger texts' i.e. they give enough information so that you want to read further or continue your learning on the internet. The colours have been used nicely, with realistic print colours of patients, instruments and slides. The set out of the books are ideal with good, quick reference contents, making the series ideal for students in Clinics and/or ward rounds."

The short pictorial textbook on neurology, is intended to help medical students and junior doctors understand and manage patients with neurological problems. All chapters are concise and very educative, based on practical experience, with many highly informative colour pictures, documenting typical clinical findings, neuroimaging, essential laboratory data, tables as well as neuropathological findings. This unique approach allows review of a wide selection of cases not only seen in the every-day practice but also of rather rare ones. A highly informative and challenging book for young neurologists.
