Since World War II there have been many drastic revisions in our knowledge of the peripheral nervous system. Accounts of segmental sensory representation and muscle innervation have become increasingly accurate and useful. Prominent advances have been made in physiology of peripheral nerves and in the pathogenesis of their diseases. Most of this information remains widely dispersed in specialized monographs, and no comprehensive presentation is available to the student. This text is presented as "a simple yet comprehensive introduction to the study of the peripheral nervous system" and is directed toward medical and dental students, physical therapists, general practitioners, and neurologists.
