The classic step-by-step guide to learning how to perform the diagnostic neurologic examination now in full color

Rave reviews of earlier edition:

Without question the best book available on the neurologic examination.
--Four Stars from Doody*

Excellent. The information is detailed, pertinent, and excellently arranged. What is surprising is the incredibly complete, interesting, and worthwhile information it contains. The author is obviously an excellent clinician and teacher who has taught many years. One can easily detect that [DeMyer s] book contains the distilled best of his teaching experiences.
--Archive of Internal Medicine*

The book presents much more information than the title suggests; it has excellent parts on neuroanatomy and clinical neurosciences.
--Four Stars (Excellent) from Mayo Clinic Proceedings*

For more than four decades, DeMyer s The Neurologic Examination has provided neurologists and psychiatrists in training with a uniquely clear and didactic way of learning the complicated technique of using the physical examination to diagnose neurologic illness. This trusted classic also reviews the anatomy and physiology necessary to interpret the examination, and it details the laboratory tests best suited for a particular clinical problem.

Utilizing a proven-effective, learn-at-your-own-pace teaching approach, DeMyer s allows you to work through real-life clinical situations and rehearse the skills and procedures that make the neurologic examination productive for both patient and clinician. You will also learn how to tailor the exam for different clinical needs, including:

  • The Face and Head
  • Vision
  • The Peripheral Ocular Motor System
  • The Central Ocular Motor System
  • Cerebellar Dysfunction

  • The Special Senses

DeMyer s The Neurologic Examination features a new full-color presentation that includes the latest imaging modalities for assessing disease, questions and answers to help you monitor your progress, and content that reflects the knowledge and experience of outstanding teachers/clinicians.
