Building on the author's personal experience in working with fellows and residents in the electromyography laboratory, this volume is the definitive reference in the field. It is intended for clinicians who perform electrodiagnostic procedures as an extension of their clinical examination, and will be of value to neurologists and physiatrists who are interested in neuromuscular disorders and noninvasive electrodiagnostic methods, particularly those practicing electromyography (EMG). The book provides a comprehensive review of most peripheral nerve and muscle diseases, including specific techniques and locations for performing each test. Divided into two major sections, the first addresses the basics of electrodiagnosis, including information on anatomy and physiology, techniques for nerve conduction studies, and discussions of the blink reflex and H-reflex, etc. The second section presents each neuromuscular disorder, covering clinical aspects and extensive information on the distinctive electrophysiological findings typical of the disease. New for this edition: thorough updating of all chapters with extensive new references; entirely new sections on magnetic stimulation, human reflexes, late responses, quantitative EMG, motor unit number estimate, threshold electrotonus, and pediatric electrodiagnosis; consolidated yet comprehensive coverage of periperhal, as well as CNS studies, offering a practical approach for problem-solving; ample space allotted for clinical discussion.

Jun Kimura is at University of Iowa College of Medicine, Iowa City.Review:
"This marvelously well written book is very easy to read. It contains more than 1200 additional up-to-date references, excellent diagrams, illustrations, and many useful tables. This book obviously is the definitive text in the field of electromyography and should remain for some time to come." -Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology, 1990, 76: 90-94
"Dr. Kimura's book is the most comprehensive in electrodiagnosis. I have routinely encouraged all of our fellows to read it from cover to cover. I have frequently used it as a reference and recommend it to all electromyographers and clinicians interested in neurophysiology and neuromuscular disorders." - Neurology, May 1990, 40: 869
"This is an important and essential textbook in the training of the clinical neurophysiologist and should be a 'cover to cover read'...It was a pleasure to read and review this textbook and it is highly recommended."--Ming Lai, European Journal of Neurology, 2001
