Why consult encyclopedic references when you only need the essentials? Practical Approach to Electroencephalography, by Mark H. Libenson, MD, equips you with just the right amount of guidance you need for obtaining optimal EEG results! It presents a thorough but readable guide to EEGs, explaining what to do, what not to do, what to look for, and how to interpret the results. It also goes beyond the technical aspects of performing EEGs by providing case studies of the neurologic disorders and conditions in which EEGs are used, making this an excellent learning tool. Abundant EEG examples throughout help you to recognize normal and abnormal EEGs in all situations.

Book Reviews

"It is amazing how much information is contained in a 330 pages textbook and several topics of daily clinical interest are discussed in more detail than in other much heavier textbooks. The quality of the many illustrations is also outstanding. This is the ideal textbook for the junior neurologist who starts his EEG training, but browsing it will also be a pleasure for the experienced EEG reader. It is a highly recommended "practical" textbook." Spinal Cord, Prof. Mercelis
