This program runs on Adobe® Flash® and requires a computer or device with a USB port. These are the minimum system requirements for optimal performance: Microsoft® Windows® 7 or higher ONLY, 256 MB RAM (512 MB recommended), Screen resolution: 1024 x 768, and USB 1.1-compliant USB port. This product is not Mac compatible.

The Manual of Neurologic Signs provides users with a unique opportunity to expand their clinical experience and enhance their ability to elicit and recognize most of the common neurological signs, as well as a few rarities. The manual, with nearly 1,000 case videos, is simple and intuitive in its approach, and has been designed as a self-learning tool as well as the basis for tutorials and lectures.

Features Unique to the Manual of Neurological Signs Include:

· Five sections associated with each neurological sign, including a detailed description, associated signs, and comprehensive case reviews.
· Nearly 1,000 videos recorded over a span of 25 years of adult and pediatric neurological examinations enables users to fully understand signs through comprehensive demonstrations.
· Videos serve as a tool for self-learning as well as a tutorial in the classroom. With detailed descriptions and context for each case, yet no commentary, users are able to double-check their understanding of the relevant disorder.
· A "Beware" section gives insight to similar, but unrelated, signs that are often confused with the presenting disorder. In this way, the "Manual" guides readers to the correct diagnosis of the disease.
· Extensive footnotes offer contextual background that provides detailed historical features and the great clinicians whose work lead to the identification of the disorder.

The Manual of Neurological Signs is a clinical tool that demonstrates a wide variety of neurological signs and symptoms, as seen in teaching hospitals and clinics around the world. The videos cover patients in every age demographic thanks to the authors' expansive expertise and in many cases, the videos capture changes in signs and symptoms as the disease progresses over time. There is no commentary, so readers can form their own opinion of what is happening thus giving the illusion of being in the room observing the features that are demonstrated.

About the Author:


John G. Morris, DM(Oxon), FRACP, FRCP, AM (Order of Australia), Emeritus Consultant, Westmead Hospital, and Clinical Professor, University of Sydney, Australia.

Review:


"The material covered in this Manual is comprehensive and particularly rich...[and] the digital format allows readers to study a specific section in its entirety or to jump from one area to another for contrast and comparison. The authors state in their own introduction that they attempt to "demystify" the neurological examination, but in my view, their success is quite different, as their work in fact magnifies the wonderful mystery of neurology and allows readers to enter into this mystifying world with comfort...In its unique format and breadth, it is a modern educational tool that provides information not otherwise available on the ever-evolving nuances of phenomenology and the authors' personal and special techniques to use clinical signs to advance diagnostic accuracy. The authors provide archetypal examples, but also show much more complicated cases with difficult diagnoses."
-- Christopher G. Goetz, MD, Department of Neurology, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL


"This monumental work on neurological signs...[is a] truly extraordinary addition to the neurological literature...The star turn is of course the 950 video clips, with descriptions of signs, tips, cases and footnotes...As a rule I am sparing in my use of superlatives, but this comprehensive work is quite remarkable - well-constructed and cross-referenced, and easy to navigate. It really is essential reading, watching and owning for every neurologist, whether trainee or senior Professor. How I wish that such a guidebook had been available when I started my neurological career in the 1970s, but how delighted I am that I can use it to feast on the rich semiology and history of our chosen speciality. Amazing! Bravo!"
-- Niall Quinn MA, MD, FRCP, FAAN, FANA, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Neurology, UCL Institute of Neurology and, Honorary Consultant Neurologist, National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London, UK


"The Manual of Neurological Signs is a real tour de force developed by the team of experienced clinicians and educators John Morris and Paddy Grattan Smith. The clinical histories have been accumulated during their distinguished careers encompassing the full range of neurological presentations. Their novel use of patient video format is easy to navigate, with a clear and logical layout. The Manual is a refreshing aid to complement standard textbook presentations of neurological disease, and will be highly valued by clinicians deciphering neurological disease at the coal face."
-- Matthew Kiernan PhD, DSc, FRACP, Professor of Neurology, Prince of Wales Clinical School, Randwick, Sydney, NSW 2031, Australia; Senior Scientist, Neuroscience Research Australia; and Editor-in-Chief Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry


"Drs. John Morris and Paddy Gratton-Smith have produced a unique offering in their Manual of Neurological Signs. In recent years it has become commonplace for videotapes to be included on CDs published with textbooks and some publishers offer access to this type of material on their websites. However, none have provided such an extensive display of extremely well documented case material in such an easily accessible, intuitive format... In the Manual of Neurologic Signs, Drs. Morris and Gratton-Smith have provided us with the next important advance in the long history of graphic depiction of neurology."
-- Anthony E. Lang OC, MD, FRCPC, FAAN, FCAHS, FRSC, Director, Division of Neurology and the Jack Clark Chair for Parkinson's Disease Research, University of Toronto; and Director of the Morton and Gloria Shulman Movement Disorders Clinic and the Edmond J. Safra Program in Parkinson's Disease, Toronto Western Hospital
