Neuro-ophthalmology

by Ashok Garg, Emanuel Rosen, Arturo Perez Arteaga, Jawahar Lal Goyal

The brain interprets many rough parallel representations of the world in such a way that it apparently can provide us with the information we seem to need. The visual system is one of the best studied areas of the human brain and every year thousands of newspapers concerning the visual system and Neuro-ophthalmology are published. Besides the progress in knowledge of sensory information processing, the increasing knowledge of the control of eye movements also contributes to the understanding of how the brain works. This progress in Neuroscience has been matched by a comparable increase in research and understanding of pathological conditions. Furthermore, understanding the systems itself and its diseases, Neuro-ophthalmological disorders often are an important clue to the localization of a disease process. Therefore, Neuro-ophthalmology covers an enormously broad range of physiology and pathology of the brain and the eye. The present book on Neuro-ophthalmology contains 5 sections which subsequently deal with anatomy and physiology, clinical investigations, pathology of the sensory visual pathways, eye movement disorders, non-organic diseases and the autonomic nervous system. All these aspects are covered by several experts in the field of Neuro-ophthalmology. This book provide complete and useful clinical information to ophthalmologists all around the world and shall help them to accurately and precisely diagnose, treat and manage their clinical cases confidently to the satisfaction and expectations of their valued patients.
