Arch Neurol. 1998;55(4):574. doi:

Marshall and Mayer, together with 5 other contributors, authored this useful book that is divided into 3 main parts.

Part 1 is an introduction that contains an approach to the neurological patient while the physician is on call, the neurological examination, differential diagnosis and localization, and a brief description of common neurological diagnostic studies. This part contains the basic information necessary to obtain the database for localizing a lesion, making a diagnosis, and understanding the basics of commonly ordered investigations, such as cerebrospinal fluid analysis, electromyography, electroencephalography, and neuroradiological procedures. Further details of laboratory findings are given under their respective topics later in the book.
