Abstract

Landmark Papers in Neurology is a unique synthesis of expert opinion, charting the origins and contemporary development of clinical neuroscience. Through these important papers, covering a full range of neurodevelopmental, neurovascular, neuroinflammatory, and neurodegenerative perspectives, international opinion leaders describe the wider historical context, provoke debate, and inspire further reading. For each specialty, core findings are dissected across ten key manuscripts, and placed within a transforming neurological landscape, incorporating an extensive bibliography to guide further reading. Illustrations and figures feature throughout the text, with an opening chapter that focuses on the ten most critical developments in technology that have driven clinical advancement. Nobel Prize-winning research sits alongside less famous and, at times, seemingly controversial studies, which nonetheless provide key insights into shaping contemporary thought. This is a book not just for the historian, nor indeed the present-day neurological enthusiast, but rather caters for all those interested in the future of clinical neuroscience. provides an ideal primer for those beginning a career in neuroscience and also for the established investigator, searching for a broader understanding. Experts who think they have nothing more to learn from the past may find surprising reward in comparing their own list of landmark papers with the pearls described within.
