||This book provides a clear and readable introduction to the
central concepts of clinical neuroscience. The first part of the book deals
with fundamental areas of neuroscience required for a sound understanding of
brain disease. This is followed by an account of the neurobiology of the most
common and important brain diseases of the western world (stroke, epilepsy,
Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis). The book is
in the same general style as the successful Crossman: Neuronatomy with
extensive colour illustrations.
