About the Book

This book, the second of three volumes, concentrates on peripheral nervous system disorders. Examining the effects of neurotoxicants on nerve, muscle and the neuromuscular junction, it builds on the scientific principles outlined in volume 1 by looking at the application of the methods discussed, particularly in terms of the evaluation and diagnosis of individual patients and the related process of establishing causation.

Neurobehavorial Toxicology, Volume 2 will be of interest to practicing neurologists and neuropsychologists, as well as to occupational medicine physicians and medical toxicologists.

Reviews

'The authors are both very experienced, thoughtful clinicians, as indicated from the clinical anecdotes that frequently illustrate the text, turning what could have been, in less expert hands, rather dry tomes into an engaging read, full of clinical insights and well-reasoned arguments.' - Stephen Mullin, PsyCritiques, 2nd June 2006
