Matters pertaining to psychopharmacology have been deliberately excluded except in so far as they impinge on ordinary clinical neurological practice. The extent to which various disorders have been considered has depended partly on their importance to the clinical neurologist practising in non-tropical areas, and partly on the amount of data available relating to the relevant drug treatment. Thus the book is directed at clinical neurologists and those intending to practise clinical neurology.

Although the emphasis in this book is on drug treatment, to preserve balance it has seemed desirable to discuss briefly certain non-pharmacological aspects of thera­ peutics.
