Published Reviews

    REVIEW OF THE LAST EDITION:

    "Should be a welcome addition to the library of any physician or student who is interested in peripheral nervous system disorders."—Archives of Neurology, review of the text
    "Highly recommended...An excellent study guide for those preparing for certifying examinations in electrodiagnostic medicine."—Neurology, review of the video companion.

    Preston and Shapiro provide expanded coverage of nerve conduction studies and electromyography (EMG) of neuromuscular disorders. The volume includes case examples, updated/new figures, and a summary of normal adult and pediatric values from nerve conduction studies. The two companion CDs feature common EMG waveforms.
