Widely acknowledged as the most comprehensive book on its subject, this book offers concise, practical guidance on the use of electrodiagnostic techniques for investigating problems of both the central and peripheral nervous systems. Forty-two experts, many new to this edition, discuss the principles, scope, limitations, diagnostic importance, prognostic relevance and complications for each technique.
This book provides neurologists, geneticists, pediatricians, and pharmacologists with basic knowledge for genetic counselling, while putting emphasis on the evidence of heterogeneity in this field. The volume contains separate sections on population rates, family studies on selected syndromes, and special methods and topics. Two particularly topical questions concern the prospective evaluation of morbidity risk for seizures in offspring of epileptic patients and the relationship of pharmacogenetics to epilepsy. The book aims to stimulate communication across traditional disciplinary lines and to further collaborative research.

Niedermeyer's Electroencephalography: Basic Principles, Clinical Applications, and Related Fields, Seventh Edition keeps the clinical neurophysiologist on the forefront of medical advancements. This authoritative text covers basic neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, and neuroimaging to provide a better understanding of clinical neurophysiological findings. This edition further delves into current state-of-the-art recording EEG activity both in the normal clinical environment and unique situations such as the intensive care unit, operating rooms, and epilepsy monitoring suites. As computer technology evolves, so does the integration of analytical methods that significantly affect the reader's interpretations of waveforms and trends that are occurring on long-term monitoring sessions. Compiled and edited by Donald L. Schomer and Fernando H. Lopes da Silva, along with a global team of experts, they collectively bring insight to crucial sections including basic principles of EEG and MEG, normal EEG, EEG in a clinical setting, clinical EEG in seizures and epilepsy, complementary and special techniques, event-related EEG phenomena, and shed light on the future of EEG and clinical neurophysiology. Akin to an encyclopedia of everything EEG, this comprehensive work is perfect for neurophysiology fellows, as well as neurology, neurosurgery, and general medical residents, and for the interns and medical students, and is a one-stop-shop for anyone training in EEG or preparing for neurophysiology or epilepsy board exams.

A comprehensive review of enuresis, such as this, has long been overdue. In this book attention is given to bladder control, reflecting current interest in developmental aspects of paediatrics, and to enuresis, reflecting the need to relieve a common cause of unhappiness. The topics discussed include how most children become dry by age four or five, and why a minority do not; why these children go on wetting their beds, and why some start doing so after a period of dryness. The prevalence of bedwetting in younger children varies curiously in different countries. Treatment, by explanation, by drugs and by the buzzer, is well covered in practical detail. Previously published articles are reviewed. In too many it has been difficult to determine whether authors are consistently writing about day-time or night-time, life-long or acquired, wetting. Emphasis is given to papers in which soundly based research is clearly reported. Though this book was inspired by and derives from a recent International Colloquium at Newcastle, it is anything but a report of that Colloquium. To extend coverage and avoid repetition, a number of chapters have been specially written, and papers have been re-written, fused or omitted; several up-to-date, comprehensive and authoritative reviews have been included. Whether readers are community, hospital or family doctors, or psychologists, they can enjoy criticising and evaluating the at times differing views put forward, and can synthesise their own new and better conclusions. The editors have aimed to clear the way for further research by identifying clearly what is known and posing questions. Equally, however, it is hoped that this volume will promote a deeper and better understanding of bladder control and enuresis, and enable doctors who use it for reference to give more effective help to children with wetting problems.
