About the Author

Eduardo E. Benarroch
Professor of Neurology
Department of Neurology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN


"The neurologist is increasingly called upon to know the physiological basis of disease, so as to provide better care for patients. As science advances, such knowledge can seem out of reach or arcane, inaccessible to many. And here is where Professor Benarroch's volume excels, by bringing modern scientific understanding, in a clear, concise manner to the reader, whether a student, clinical trainee, or established clinician. This superb volume will serve as an
introduction to the pathophysiology of some disorders for many and, equally, a refresher or update to those seeking such. And for those wishing to dip into the primary literature, it's difficult to
imagine a more satisfying jumping-off volume. Neuroscience for Clinicians fills an important gap in our literature." -- Robert A. Gross, MD, PhD, Professor of Neurology and of Pharmacology & Physiology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY
