This is a textbook of neurology from the UCL Institute of Neurology and National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen Square, London, and content based on the neurological training programme.

The book attempts to blend clinical and basic neuroscience, particularly in relation to molecular biology, genetics, neurochemistry and physiology. The book presents a synthesis of modern science with traditional clinical neurology rooted in history taking and the meticulous elicitation of physical signs.
