This innovative textbook is modelled on problem-based learning. It bridges the gap between academic neuroanatomy and clinical neurology and effectively takes the reader from the classroom to the clinic, so that learning can be applied in practice.

This second edition has been updated and expanded to include many more clinical cases within both the book and the accompanying web site.

This book and the associated Web site will be of practical value to all the professionals who deal with people who have neurological conditions, as well as being invaluable to medical students and residents. This includes physiatrists (rehabilitation medicine specialists), physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists, and nurses who specialize in the care of neurological patients. We think that this text will also be of value for family physicians and specialists in internal medicine and pediatrics, all of whom must differentiate between organic pathology of the nervous system and other conditions.

Authors Biography

Dr. Walter J. Hendelman is a Canadian born and raised in Montreal. He did his undergraduate studies at McGill University in science with honours in psychology, where he studied under Dr. Donald Hebb, who is now recognized for his “cell assembly” theory, explaining how the brain manages information. He then proceeded to do his medical studies also at McGill. Following a year of internship and a subsequent year of pediatric medicine in Montreal, Dr. Hendelman chose the path of brain research and academia.

Dr. Peter Humphreys, a graduate of the McGill University Faculty of Medicine in 1966, trained in pediatrics at Boston Children’s Hospital and at St. Mary’s Hospital in London, followed by training in neurology at the Montreal Neurological Institute. After a six-year stint on the neurology staff of the Montreal Children’s Hospital, he became the founding head of the Neurology Division at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Ottawa, a position he held for 23 years. Although now semi-retired, Dr. Humphreys continues an active outpatient clinical practice. His principal area of interest is in disorders of brain development

Dr. Christopher Skinner earned his BEng (electrical) from the Royal Military College in 1970. He worked as a systems engineer with the Department of National Defence, implementing nationwide information systems until 1975. He earned his medical degree from Queen’s University in 1979. He received his specialist certification in general internal medicine in 1986, in neurology in 1987, and qualified as a Diplomat of the American Board of Sleep Medicine in 2005. He was chief information officer at the Ottawa Hospital from 1996 to 1998.
