Book Description

Clinical Applications of Human Neuroscience: A Laboratory Guide is a succinct and clinically relevant guide for learning how to interpret and understand findings elicited on clinical examination. The guide offers a review of essential information on neurological examinations, perfectly blended with a structured set of clinically relevant exercises demonstrating the use and application of basic neuroanatomic and neurophysiologic information in the performance and interpretation of exam results.

Dr. Michael F. Nolan organized Clinical Applications of Human Neuroscience around the basic elements of the neurological examination: sensory systems, motor systems, reflexes, and cranial nerves with information that is useful in both performing the exam and interpreting the elicited findings. The exercises inside are designed as group activities, offering the opportunity for students to discern that most findings in clinical examinations are characterized by a range of responses in both normal individuals and persons with neurological abnormalities.

Inside Clinical Applications of Human Neuroscience, each chapter includes a series of neuroscience review questions that focus on the anatomical and physiological principles necessary to interpret exam findings. Also included are application exercises, modeled on the neurological examination, which directly link the basic principles with their clinical application.

Clinical Applications of Human Neuroscience: A Laboratory Guide is a one-of-a-kind reference perfect for physical therapist students, clinicians, medical students, and other health professionals involved in the evaluation and treatment of individuals with neurologic disorders.
