Despite its all-inclusive title, this volume contains papers devoted solely to clinical electrodiagnostic techniques. But within this delimited area, much of the current thinking and methodology on electroretinography, electro-oculography, and evoked cortical response is thoroughly covered. Its greatest value, however, will be for those practitioners who already possess working units, are actively engaged in performing these tests, and who wish to gain further insight into the diagnostic implications of their recordings. One or two introductory papers are included in the collection. These are well written and especially recommended to those readers who have not been able to keep pace with the burgeoning literature in this area. A few contributors do not assume any familiarity with the subject matter and often explain each new term as it is introduced. On the other extreme, full understanding of one or two of the papers may require the help of an electronics expert.
