Since it was first published in 1994, Neurology in Practice has been widely used as a textbook by students, trainees, physicians, and allied health professionals. While there have been transformative advances in neuroscience in the past two decades, clinical practice remains central. In this fifth edition, the authors highlight proper clinical methodology and application of evidence-based knowledge for effective management. All chapters have been thoroughly updated and two new chapters, ‘Disorders of Cerebrospinal Fluid Dynamics’ and ‘Autoimmune Disorders of the Nervous System’, have also been added.
