More premature infants, with lower birth weights, are surviving today than ever before, greatly increasing the number of infants who require careful neurological assessment. This short, easy-to-follow handbook, written by an internationally respected pediatric neurologist, provides a systematic introduction to the neurological examination of premature and full-term infants, considering the maturational changes that occur in premature babies as well as normal development during the first year and after. The volume is profusely illustrated with pictures of infants demonstrating various postures, reflexes and movements in physical examination, often accompanied by line drawings which further clarify these postures.
