**** The eighth edition (1989) is cited in Brandon-Hill. A classic textbook for medical students, house officers, and practicing neurologists, technical advances in imaging have led to the substitution of 50 new figures in this revised and updated ninth edition, which also incorporates molecular genetics in chapters on particular diseases as well as in some general chapters. Keeping up with other changes, new chapters have been added on child abuse, neurorehabilitation, paraneoplastic syndromes, mitochondrial diseases, and the selection of laboratory tests for differential diagnosis.
