THERAPEUTIC NIHILISM is no longer an apt caricature of neurology. We now read regularly of therapeutic advances in all fields of neurology. The therapeutics of neurologic disorders have become a common theme at professional meetings and a pervasive topic of scientific reports. Advertisements of neurologic therapies abound. Most rewarding is the positive impact that neurotherapeutic advances have made on morbidity, mortality, and quality of life of our patients and families. It is a fitting time for Archives of Neurology to devote a regular section to Neurotherapeutics.
