With this, the fifth edition in a quarter century of what has become the classic textbook of electrodiagnostic methodology for clinical electrophysiologists, Dr Aminoff and his now 48 collaborators have outdone themselves in defining the place of that methodology in neurodiagnosis and in the care of patients with neurologic disease. The editor and his associates have never intended their text to be a compendium, detailing every nuance of every technique; rather, they have striven to define the clinical relevance of studies ranging from everyday electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), and evoked potentials (EPs) to more specialized studies, such as magnetoencephalography, tests of vestibular function, and polysomnography. In the judgment of this reviewer, they have succeeded admirably in this task.
