Article Level Metrics. Your Name: Paul, Wiley, Chichester, , pp. This textbook is a collection of review lectures given by distinguished basic scientists and clini- cians and arranged as a comprehensive tutorial covering both fundamental and applied aspects of the EEG and clinical neurophysiology.
As stated in the preface, the tutorial lectures were structured to emphasize techniques and applications whose significance is well established and were aimed at updating knowledge for established workers and at providing an overview for newcomers in the field of EEG and clinical neurophysiology. The book is divided into 6 sections.

The chapters are well printed and illustrated and, despite the multiauthorship, of uniformly high quality. The book is well laid out and indexed and reasonably priced. I was particularly fascinated with C. This is not surprising, however, because the stimulus intensities employed in human somatosensory evoked potential SEP studies excite the largest myelinated fibers in peripheral nerves which in turn activate the dorsal column-medial lemniscal system, and clinical studies have consistently found SEP abnormalities associated with disorders of joint position, touch, vibration and stereognosis but not with disorders affecting only pain and temperature sensations.
In summary, the breadth and authoritative depth of contents make this book a highly valuable asset to medical libraries and thoroughly recommended to both specialists and advanced students in clinical neurophysiology as well as neuroscientists in other fields.
After a brief historical introduction there is a chapter on the fundamentals of neurophysiology. The material here is mostly at primary FRCA level but there are particularly clear explanations of the physiological aspects of nerve conduction and evoked potentials.
Not only are the multi-authored chapters consistent a real credit to the editors they are well written and the quality of the figures is good, the technical descriptions are clear and easy to follow, making this book essential preliminary reading for anaesthetists wanting to pursue research using neurophysiological techniques.
The techniques covered include compound muscle action potentials, evoked potentials and sleep studies.
A third of the book is devoted to the EEG and the chapters on EEG technology and analysis can be envisaged to be potentially most useful. In conclusion, this is a book that will have a niche market for anaesthetists. For those interested in more clinical aspects of the interface between neurophysiology and anaesthesia or intensive care I would not recommend this book.
However, it is a potentially valuable resource for research departments with an interest in, for example, neuromuscular function or measurement of the depth of anaesthesia.
