9780195133790: Neuroepidemiology: From Principles to Practice

Neuroepidemiology is the epidemiologic study of neurological conditions. This fine text provides a comprehensive and accessible overview of research methods for conducting epidemiologic and clinical research on these conditions. It is aimed at neurologists, epidemiologists and public health professionals, as well as students of these disciplines. The book has three parts, each emphasizing the unique aspects of studying neurologic disorders. The first focuses on classic principles of epidemiologic and clinical research, including study design, sources of study bias, and methods for assessing the role of environmental and genetic factors in neurologic disorders. The second part covers each of the major neurologic disorders, with an emphasis of the methodologic aspects of studying these disorders and discussion of future research directions. The third part is devoted to clinical and translational research methods, including the design and conduct of clinical trials and prognostic studies, as well as the principles of health services research and evidence-based medicine. This textbook will give neurologists, epidemiologists, and their students the foundation for conducting rigorous epidemiologic and clinical research on neurologic disorders.

From The New England Journal of Medicine:

This book, a much-needed reference in the relatively new field of neuroepidemiology, is excellent for neurologists, clinical scientists, and workers in the area of neurologic clinical research. The authors offer a well-written and comprehensive step-by-step approach, explaining epidemiologic methods and their applications in clinical research on neurologic disorders. The book, which is well organized and concise, provides easy-to-understand case scenarios and examples, as well as tables and illustrations that clarify the methods described and allow for a rapid overview. An ideal starting point for anyone who is new to neuroepidemiology, this book is an important resource for practitioners in evidence-based medicine who require knowledge about more advanced epidemiologic applications relevant to the interpretation of published data in neurology. It covers the main neurologic diseases and provides easy access to epidemiology for subspecialists. The section on clinical epidemiology is an excellent resource for neurologic scientists planning for clinical trials and interpreting research data. Overall, the book manages to turn a dry and complex subject into an interesting and easily understandable topic. It is highly recommended for all practitioners in the field of evidence-based neurology and clinical neurologic research. James F. Toole, M.D.
