Millions of Americans and their families experience the daily challenges of living with physical, mental, or emotional difficulties that result from brain disorders caused by heredity, infection, injury, tumors, or degeneration. Damage to the brain may result in permanent disability, but with appropriate treatment and follow-up care many affected individuals are able to participate fully in day-to-day activities.

Brain Disorders Sourcebook, 4th Edition, provides readers with information about brain function, neurological emergencies such as stroke or seizure, and symptoms of brain disorders. It describes the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation therapies for genetic and congenital brain disorders, brain infections, brain tumors, seizures, traumatic brain injuries, and degenerative neurological disorders.
