The book is based on an international meeting held in Essen, Germany, in November 1992 and is a comprehensive treatise that examines the pathophysiological disturbances that occur in patients with spasticity. The meeting and the subsequent book are unique in having drawn together basic scientists, clinical scientists and clinicians to consider the movement disturbance and reflex abnormalities of the spastic patient. Each chapter is authored by an international authority on that topic, and the chapters are grouped in sections with a summary of discussions on those chapters. The discussion summaries thus identify growing areas andcontentious issues, thereby amplifying the content of the individual chapters.
