The rapid expansion of clinical knowledge in the field of neurology warrants a new edition of this highly regarded textbook of neurology. In addition to the anchor chapters on major areas such as headache, stroke, developmental disorders, dementia, epilepsy, acquired metabolic disorders, and others, several new chapters have been added to meet the clinical demand for those in practice. This edition features new chapters on neurotoxicology, neuroimaging, and neurogenetics including basic and more advanced concepts for the practitioner. Finally, as the health care system continues to evolve, a new chapter on population health and systems of care reflects current practice in team care, patient-centric approaches, and value-based care.
