This classic text on paediatric neurology is now in its 4th edition. Leading academics from around the world present evidence from their various areas of expertise, placing it firmly in the clinical context. Each chapter covers the basic science of the disorder and relevant genetic advances. New to this edition are chapters on fetal neurology, movement disorders, basal ganglia disease and psychogenic disorders. References at the end of each chapter are thorough, guiding the clinician to relevant further reading.
The international team of editors has maintained the clinical approach of the late Jean Aicardi, which distinguishes this book from others in the field. Succinctly given, patient-focused information makes Aicardi's Diseases of Nervous System in Childhood a comprehensive yet readable resource for busy clinicians in paediatric neurology, general paediatrics, neurodisability and all the related medical disciplines.

• Anne O'Hare is Professor of Community Paediatrics and Director of the Salvesen Mindroom Centre for Learning Difficulties, at the University of Edinburgh, UK. She is a developmental paediatrician with extensive clinical experience in neurodisability, neuroscience and child protection. Her research interests include how neurodevelopmental conditions impact on the development of speech, language, communication, motor skills and learning and the development of effective interventions. She has co-edited and contributed to numerous book chapters and articles in her field.
• Michael Johnston is Professor of Neurology, Paediatrics and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Chief Medical Officer and Blum Moser Endowed Professor of Paediatric Neurology at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

He has received the Bernard Sachs award from the Child Neurology Society and the Frank Ford Lecture Award from the International Child Neurology Association (ICNA) as well as the Jacob Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award from the National Institutes of Health.
• Robert Ouvrier is Emeritus Professor of Child Neurology at the University of Sydney, Australia. After training in general paediatrics in Sydney, Perth and Papua-New Guinea, he undertook specialist training in child neurology at the Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne, the University of Kentucky (1969-70) and the Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore USA (1971-72). He was Head of the Department of Neurology at the Children's Hospital at Westmead, Sydney for 25 years. In 1999, he became the Foundation Head of the Institute for Neuroscience and Muscle Research at The Children's Hospital, Westmead.
