Editorial Reviews

`A small book, but full with many precise details of the higher interest for the specialists in myology and neurology.' Cellular and Molecular Biology `This is an excellent reference source and would be a valuable purchase for libraries and those involved in neuromuscular research.' Physiotherapy Journal
