Published Reviews

"It is a comprehensive review of the latest understanding of neurophysiology techniques and how neurophysiology relates to clinical function. This edition continues to delight and impress. The topics and updates are spot on. This is an essential title that all neurologists and neuroscience professionals must have on their bookshelves." - Joseph I Sirven, MD(Mayo Clinic Arizona) Doody's Review Service 

"Aminoff's Electrodiagnosis in Clinical Neurology has become known as the classic textbook of electrodiagnostic methodology.The list of collaborators reads like a Who's Who of clinical neurophysiology. Electrodiagnosis in Clinical Neurology belongs in every clinical neurophysiology laboratory and should be easily accessible to residents and students. Academic neurologists and physiatrists and those in clinical practice - both those who use these techniques and those who simply refer their patients for such studies - should find this text a valuable reference source as well." - JAMA, September 2005
