Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders
Fifth edition
edited by Joseph Jankovic

Written by an international group of renowned experts, the Fifth Edition of Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders provides comprehensive, current information on the genetics, pathophysiology, diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment, and behavioral and psychologic concomitants of all common and uncommon movement disorders.

Coverage includes:

  • Parkinson's disease
  • other neurodegenerative diseases
  • tremors
  • dystonia
  • Tourette's syndrome
  • Huntington's disease
  • ataxias

This edition features extensive updates on genetics, imaging, and therapeutics of Parkinson's disease, other parkinsonian disorders, and all hyperkinetic movement disorders.

A bound-in CD-ROM, Video Atlas of Movement Disorders, demonstrates the movement and posture abnormalities and other disturbances associated with Parkinson's disease and other neurologic disorders.
