About Practical Neurology
Aims and Scope
The essential point of Practical Neurology is that it is practical in the sense of being useful for everyone who sees neurological patients and who wants to keep up to date, and safe, in managing them. In other words this is a journal for jobbing neurologists - which most of us are for at least part of our time - who plough through the tension headaches and funny turns week in and week out.
Practical Neurology is co-owned by BMJ and the Association of British Neurologists.
