Newly updated to reflect recent discoveries, fifth edition of Introduction to Clinical Neurology covers all the take home points beneficial to everyone who relies on this quick and handy guide. This book focuses on the "how" and "why" of clinical neurology. It includes extensive factual material about individual disease processes, but the emphasis is on information that is important for understanding why patients with neurologic conditions are managed the way they are. This book covers what clinicians need to know in order to assess and manage the patients they will encounter in general medical practice, including the application of a logical approach to diagnosis, neurologic examination and how to interpret the findings, and the management of specific disease categories and symptoms. A highly accessible and engaging text, this is the go-to in all things neurology.

About the Author

Born in Minnesota, Douglas J. Gelb moved to Cambridge, MA for college (Harvard), Chicago, IL for medical and graduate school (University of Chicago), and San Francisco for internship and neurology residency (University of California, San Francisco). He did graduate research in human visual perception, but his clinical experiences in medical school and residency convinced him that his principal interests were patient care and teaching. In 1988, immediately after completing his residency, he moved to the University of Michigan and became the first faculty member in the Department of Neurology to be hired in the clinical academic track. At the University of Michigan, he directs the required third-year neurology clerkship and the second-year course on diseases of the nervous system. Nationally, he has been the Chair of the Consortium of Neurology Clerkship Directors and the Chair of the American Academy of Neurology A.B. Baker Section on Neurologic Education, and has served on numerous
other educational committees. He was the lead author of the Neurology Clerkship Core Curriculum.
