About this book

Incorporating the most recent literature and state-of-the-art methods, this practical work and atlas covers the entire domain of neuropathology for forensic pathologists as well as for specialists in associated fields. Its concise, direct style provides the reader with succinct and easy-to-find answers to forensic, pathological, pathophysiological, biomechanical, and molecular biology problems. Additionally, the authors cover several basic and practical problems that may stimulate further research.

Each chapter includes an overview of the literature as well as specified references, and features a wealth of figures, graphs, and tables.

The present volume deals with specific aspects of neuropathology, and is particularly appropriate for all those interested and involved in the field of forensic pathology, forensic sciences, clinical pathology, neurology, neurosurgery, law, and criminology. Special emphasis is placed on expertise concerning the field's relevance for everyday practice and also on up-to-date data in basic research.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Forensic Neuropathology and Associated Neurology covers virtually all aspects of neurologic disease and possible forensic applications to this branch of medicine, particularly the mechanisms, aging, and dating of various processes. … This textbook can occupy a useful place in one’s library. It will be helpful to forensic pathologists, neuropathologists, and many others … ." (Jan E. Leestma, The New England Journal of Medicine, July, 2006)

"This text is one of two recent publications on forensic neuropathology … . Photographs accompanying the text are clear and appropriate, with useful legends. The text is well referenced throughout, with a strong basis in the Germanic literature … . This ensures the reference list and bibliography as a must for the practising forensic pathologists and neuorpathologists. Overall, this book makes an excellent reference text … . At £230 it is worth considering for the reference shelves of forensic pathologists and neuropathologists … ." (Dr. S. Kolar, ACP News, Autumn, 2006)

"Oehmichen, Auer and König cover the areas in this specialty where the gaps in the knowledge of both experts border on each other. The book is, therefore, a gap-filler in the best sense of the word … . The illustrations are abundant and of high quality. … The authors have succeeded in producing an urgently needed and long-since-overdue presentation of a specialty in forensic pathology and neuropathology that confronts the forensic pathologist on a daily basis." (A. Du Chesne, International Journal of Legal Medicine, Vol. 121, 2007)

"This textbook of forensic neuropathology and associated neurology was written by three authorities in the field. It doubles as a concise neuropathology textbook and represents far more than a practical guide … . It is addressed toward clinical neuroscientists (neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuropediatricians), pathologists and forensic and clinical neuropathologists. I would also think that experimental neuroscientists could be inspired by it. This book holds excellent detailed descriptions and may be considered the ‘Greenfield’ of forensic neuropathology. I highly recommend it." (Professor Manuel B. Graeber, Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology, Vol. 66 (6), 2007)
