Principles and Practice of Movement Disorders provides the complete, expert guidance you need to diagnose and manage these challenging conditions. Drs. Stanley Fahn, Joseph Jankovic and Mark Hallett explore all facets of these disorders, including the latest rating scales for clinical research, neurochemistry, clinical pharmacology, genetics, clinical trials, and experimental therapeutics. This edition features many new full-color images, additional coverage of pediatric disorders, updated Parkinson information, and many other valuable updates. An accompanying Expert Consult website makes the content fully searchable and contains several hundred video clips that illustrate the manifestations of all the movement disorders in the book along with their differential diagnoses.
Get just the information you need for a clinical approach to diagnosis and management, with minimal emphasis on basic science.
Find the answers you need quickly and easily thanks to a reader-friendly full-color format, with plentiful diagrams, photographs, and tables.

"The best feature of this book is the link to all the video clips noted in the chapters. This is a valuable tool for anyone wanting to learn about movement disorders because visualizing the movements is crucial. I commend the authors for this outstanding addition and I appreciate the time and preparation that was devoted to developing this. This textbook is an adjunct to the yearly Movement Disorders Course that is hosted by the authors in Aspen, CO. I highly recommend the course and this textbook for anyone, from medical students to nurses to neurologists and movement disorders specialists, who is interested in a comprehensive review of movement disorders."
