This work's self-teaching programmed format aims to help teach students how to conduct a neurologic examination, review the anatomy and physiology for interpreting it, and show which laboratory tests help to clarify the clinical problem. Updated to reflect the impact of new imaging modalities such as CT and MRI on neurological diagnosis, it is designed to represent the situations physicians are likely to encounter in practice and rehearses responses they will need to make.

DeMyer’s Technique of the Neurologic Examination continues to be a singularly important book in the medical literature, as it remains the only comprehensive book to guide the trainee and practitioner in the fundamentals and nuances of the neurologic exam. The new edition will continue to build on its foundation for practically teaching the procedure and technique of the neurologic exam, along with an abundance of new corollary information related to electro-diagnostic tests for the peripheral nervous system and new imaging modalities for assessing disease.From the Back Cover:
