Magnetic Stimulation in Clinical Neurophysiology

      Since 1896 when d'Arsonval demonstrated that changing magnetic fields could stimulate excitable tissue (humans experienced phosphenes or bright spots due to either retinal or visual cortex stimulation) and 1965 when Bickford and Fremming stimulated human peripheral nerves, a long delay occurred before this technique was used in clinical practice. In recent years, magnetic stimulation has been the topic of discussion in many papers and symposia presented at major clinical neurophysiology meetings. The need for a single reference source with the pertinent information related to this subject has now been filled with the availability of this well-edited text by Chokroverty. The First International Symposium on Magnetic Stimulation in Clinical Neurophysiology was a major impetus for this book.
