Added to Your Shopping Cart. Description As teachers of neurology to postgraduates, the authors found that most students had a good general idea of the parts of a neurological examination but were unclear about many other specifics. These included, among others, the best methods of carrying out the various tests; the purpose of each test; how to overcome technical difficulties; the true meaning of abnormal findings; and how to avoid arriving at false conclusions.
