Handbook of Clinical Neurology Volume 94, Stroke Part III: Investigation and Management
Department of Neurology
Neurology | Neuroscience and Neurobiology
The third of three volumes on stroke in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology series covering investigation, management and therapy of stroke. Until a few years ago, strokes were considered ‘experiments of nature’ that provided help in understanding the functional anatomy of the brain, but for which little could be done in terms of therapeutic intervention and prevention. These three volume record how this has now profoundly changed and cover advances in our understanding of the biochemical background of strokes coupled with advances in fields as diverse as epidemiology, genetics, neuroimaging, interventional radiology, surgery, clinical psychology and most particularly prevention and management. The aim is to provide both basic researchers with the foundation for new investigations and clinicians a source of reference to enable them to gain a thorough knowledge and understanding of the clinical features and management of the many neurological manifestations of stroke.
