This brand-new revision aid has been designed specifically to help medical students and early post-graduate doctors learn and remember pertinent information about various neurological conditions through pictorial representation, and will be invaluable throughout medical studies and particularly useful in the pressured run-up to final and post-graduate examinations.
The highly-structured information is presented in a consistent, double-page format. Each condition is represented by a characterful and memorable visual mnemonic, accompanied by a concise, high-yield review covering definition, aetiology, epidemiology, presentation, investigation, management, complications and prognosis. Over 40 common conditions are included, organized alphabetically for ease of reference.
Neurology is often viewed as a challenging subject to learn. By utilising visual imagery to aid memory and recall of important information, the author brings a refreshing new approach to knowledge consolidation.
