Abstract

50 Studies Every Neurologist Should Know presents key studies that have shaped the practice of neurology. The book particularly reflects those influential studies that seem to come up on medical rounds most frequently, with the goal of helping both beginning neurologists and seasoned academic specialists feel confident in their knowledge base of foundational studies amid an explosion of clinical trials in the past 50 years of neurology research. Selected using a rigorous methodology, the studies cover topics including behavioral neurology, epilepsy, headache, neuroinfectious disease, movement disorders, multiple sclerosis, neurocritical care, neuromuscular disease, neuro-oncology, neuro-ophthalmology, neuro-otology, sleep, spine disorders, and vascular neurology. For each study, a concise summary is presented with an emphasis on the results and limitations of the study, as well as its implications for practice and brief information on other relevant studies. An illustrative clinical case concludes each review, allowing the reader to practice applying the findings to a clinical situation.
