Book Description :
The revision of this popular veterinary medicine textbook is perfect for use in basic neuroscience courses, clinical neurology courses, and as a reference for practicing veterinarians. Divided into two parts, the first covers the fundamental concepts required to make an accurate neurological diagnosis, and Part 2 is organized in a problem-oriented format. Instructor resources are available; please contact your Elsevier sales representative for details. Many algorithms, illustrations (both photos and line drawings), and tables provide quick reference and clarification of important information. Coverage encompasses small and large animal neurology including bovine, canine, caprine, equine, feline, ovine, and porcine. Extensive references assist readers in pursuing in-depth research of more advanced topics. An appendix organized alphabetically by species makes it easy to locate material. An increased emphasis on relevant and useful neuroanatomy in Part 1 (Fundamentals) makes the text more practical for basic science courses The chapter on Confirming a Diagnosis (Chapter 4) features more detailed descriptions of advanced imaging techniques, including when they should be used and how to achieve the best results. The chapters in Part 2 (Clinical Problems: Signs and Symptoms) contain updated information on diseases and offer new test cases at the end of each chapter. Large animal test cases are now more detailed and extensive.
