This is the sixth edition of a textbook of neurology that has long been familiar to French medical students. Much of it is written in the abbreviated style characteristic of the books known as "synopses" in English-speaking countries. For the most part, this edition has undergone a thorough revision. Clinical neurology is dealt with from the descriptive standpoint, as is characteristic of French neurology, with out the correlation of clinical material with anatomy, physiology, and pathology, such as is more common in English and American textbooks.
