Foundations for Clinical Neurology
by Robert Laureno
"Foundations for Clinical Neurology is an erudite and informative book filled with the anecdotes and wisdoms of a keenly observant neurologist of vast clinical experience. It touches on many subjects of interest to the clinical neuroscientist. Dr. Laureno is widely read and has an inquisitive mind. He muses over how the ontology and phylogeny of the nervous system produces the wraparound course of the radial and peroneal nerves, how notochord remnants relate to degenerative disc disease, how bipedalism leads to meralgia paresthetica, why we hiccup and why alligators donât get dizzy. The book is filled with the clinical wisdom and aphorisms of such luminaries as Maurice Victor, Asa Wilborn, Jerome Posner, Joseph Foley, James Corbett, David Zee, Miller Fisher and Raymond Adams. I wish that Dr. Laureno had written this book years ago; I would have been a better neurologist for reading it."
