In an editorial celebrating the first anniversary of Practical Neurology, Charles Warlow described the journal's concept as

a review journal that is easy to read on the train or in a deckchair, understandable, attractive, reliable, unbiased, [and] relevant to ordinary neurologists doing ordinary neurology anywhere in the world.

That the journal fills a special niche is evident when browsing the tables of contents. It's not often that review journals have sections entitled "Me and My Neurological Illness," "A Patient That Changed My Practice," or simply "How to Do It." Each issue also includes three to four review articles and letters from neurologists around the world—the latter often published with graphics one might expect to find in a travel journal. These letters from remote areas of the world provide a useful way of establishing an international context for the journal.
