Motor Neuron Disease in Adults reviews new information as it applies to all aspects of motor neuron disease (ALS, PLS, PMA). The choice of articles is for those that use evidence-based methods to ensure that the new information is solid and advances the topic or issue. The book can be used byanyone who provides any type of care to ALS patients. In particular, neurologists will find the latest information on diagnosis and management, as well as new information on genetics and frontotemporal lobe involvement. Allied health providers will find useful information for their discipline.Patients will also find both specific and general information to help understand what they are experiencing and how to help manage their symptoms.
Marc B. Bromberg, MD, PhD, is with the Department of Neurology at the University of Utah School of Medicine, Clinical Neuroscience Center.
