Fundamentals of neurologic disease

Fundamentals of neurologic disease by Davis, Larry E. (Larry Ernest) pdf

This textbook is intended for students who wish to learn the basic principles of neurology and to understand common neurologic diseases. Authors selected 58 neurologic diseases based on their frequency, ability to represent that category of neurologic disease, value in teaching neuroscience concepts, and diagnostic importance.

Authors recognized that most introductory courses on neurologic diseases are short and lack sufficient time for a student to extensively read a comprehensive neurology textbook. In addition, while abbreviated versions of neurology textbooks cover a myriad of neurologic diseases in telegraphic style, they are difficult to comprehend unless one already knows about the disease.

Thus, many students finish the course with a spotty understanding of neurology. Authors designed this book to be read from cover to cover, giving the reader a more thorough understanding of the fundamentals of neurology.
