The eye does not see what the mind does not know.
That anonymous quote, which became the dictum of my clinical training, succinctly captures the essence of an education in clinical neurology. The bedside examination and recognition of clinical signs are essential skills for any neurologist; missing subtle signs may lead to a delay in diagnosis or, worse, a misdiagnosis. Therefore, a vital skill for students and residents to master is the ability to detect and interpret neurologic clinical signs.
