About this book


This comprehensive textbook illustrates the excitement and the difficulties of working at the interface between pure and applied research. Written with the student firmly in mind, the text provides a concise account of the basic anatomy and function of the parts of the CNS involved in controlling body movement. Clinical information is integrated throughout and, wherever possible, details of relevant experiments given.
