This is a three-volume publication containing over 2,000 pages in 170 chapters, based largely on papers read at the Brussels International Congress of Electromyography in September 1971. Each article has been updated to 1972. Volumes 1 and 2 deal with clinical electromyography and nerve conduction studies. The chapters are arranged in sections dealing with such topics as the anatomy and physiology of the motor unit and the motor end-plate, ultrastructural changes in human neuropathies, experimental neuropathies, quantitative electromyography, electromyographic kinesiology, EMG examination of sphincter muscles, nerve conduction studies in normals, as well as clinical application in the neuropathies, muscular dystrophies, myotonias, and in the myasthenic syndromes. Volume 3 starts with a brief introduction to the clinical terminology of motor disorders followed by a detailed consideration of the neurophysiology of reflexes.

The editor has attempted to produce an up-to-date account of those aspects of electromyography that are of current interest, emphasizing
