This is the first edition of a comprehensive text covering the spectrum of neuromuscular physiology, disease states, diagnosis, and treatment. As in most fields of medicine, the acceleration in research and discovery has driven neuromuscular knowledge to new heights. The amount of information has become overwhelming and changes on a daily basis. In particular, the basic science of both normal and abnormal neuromuscular function has expanded considerably. Neuromuscular Function and Disease has a strong basic science foundation while providing ample clinical information.
