The volume covers the content of a course at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, the location of all the authors. The coverage is wide and ranges from developmental disorders through nerve and muscle, autonomic function, movement disorders, disorder of cortical function, the special senses, disorders of circulation, intracranial tumors, trauma, infections, demyelinating disease, cerebrospinal fluid, and metabolic encephalopathies. The text is intended to stand between the basic neurosciences on the one side and, presumably, pure clinical teaching on the other and undoubtedly supplements the authors' lectures. The coverage is fairly comprehensive and generally clear. One might have wished for more introductory sections that would have set forth the principles in declarative fashion before discussing their implications in disease. Nevertheless, as a supplement to a lecture series and as an indication of the scope of neurological problems, Neurological Pathophysiology excellently serves its role.
