Clinical Neurophysiology: Diseases and Disorders: Handbook of Clinical Neurology Series (Volume 161) (Handbook of Clinical Neurology, Volume 161)
Clinical Neurophysiology: Diseases and Disorders, the latest release in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology series, reviews the current practice of clinical neurophysiology in the laboratory, by the bedside, and in the operating room or intensive care unit. The volume is organized into sections focused on diseases of the central and peripheral nervous systems, sleep disorders, and autonomic disorders. Among the CNS topics covered are epilepsy, altered states of consciousness, disorders of cognition, brain death, demyelinating diseases, stroke, pain, movement disorders, vestibular disease, and auditory disorders. Peripheral nervous system topics include focal mononeuropathies, generalized polyneuropathies, muscle diseases, hyperexcitability states, neuromuscular junction disorders, anterior horn cells diseases, and cranial neuropathies. There are also chapters on sleep apneas, hypersomnias, parasomnias, and circadian rhythm disorders. Autonomic topics include primary autonomic failure, multisystem atrophy, and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.
- Provides an up-to-date review on the practice of the neurophysiological techniques used in the assessment of neurological diseases
- Explores the electrophysiological techniques used to better understand neurological function and dysfunction of the central and peripheral nervous systems
- Discusses monitoring neurologic function in the intensive care unit and the assessment of suspected brain death
- Includes discussions of various newer techniques, including functional brain mapping, stereo EEG, motor evoked potentials, magnetoencephalography, laser evoked potentials, and transcranial magnetic stimulation
