The Oxford Textbook of Clinical Neurophysiology
provides a comprehensive account from world experts of the modern practice of the specialty. It deals with the full range of techniques giving the underpinning basic science and clinical use. The importance of clinical skills, as well as technical expertise are emphasized. Section I reviews the physiology of nerve, muscle, and cortex, and the digital techniques used to study them. Section II discusses the techniques for nerve conduction, electromyography (EMG), electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography, evoked potentials, and transcranial magnetic stimulation, including axonal excitability measurement, reflex studies, sleep studies pelvic floor neurophysiology and intracranial EEG. Section III reviews focal and generalized neuropathy, nerve, root, and plexus lesions, neuromuscular junction disorders, muscle disease, paediatric conditions, neurodegenerations, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and EMG-guided botulinum toxin therapy. Section IV reviews generalized and focal epilepsy, status epilepticus, coma, presurgical evaluation for epilepsy, syncope, paediatric conditions, sleep disorders and intraoperative monitoring. This title incudes video content and is written for trainees and trainers in clinical neurophysiology.Less
