Publisher Description

This Book has been developed to accompany the Manchester Medical School curriculum. Hopefully students of Neurology from many other institutions in the UK and beyond will find this collection of clinical signs and explanations of use. 

It is not intended that this Book should replace traditional bedside teaching or more detailed established texts on Neurology. Rather, it is hoped that this multimedia resource will be a valuable and easily accessible way of checking the relevance of clinical signs and how best to elicit them. Accordingly each section is dedicated to a particular clinical sign and provides a video clip of the sign together with some scientific background, information on its clinical relevance and tips on how to examine for it. In several sections a reference is given for the interested reader who wants to learn more.

Essential Reading and Viewing!

You can read as many books as you like about clinical neurology but none can accurately describe the signs of neurological disease. I think Dr Matthew Jones addresses this issue perfectly. A picture may paint a thousand words but a video can paint many more!
The videos are accompanied by brief and accurate text with helpful clinical tips, references and basic pathophysiology.
For free you can't afford to not add this to your e-library.
It would be nice to have a chapter on neurological examination from start to finish.
Thanks for this excellent resource.

Fantastic book

Great for revising for finals and getting to grips with the common signs in neurology. The videos are the more useful than any textbook, the short explanations are good to give you background on the sign, and because its on iBooks you can make notes and annotate as you go along.
