"Angelman syndrome is a neurogenetic disorder characterised by developmental delay, absence of speech, motor impairment, epilepsy, and an exuberant temperament. Its diagnosis has important implications for both medical management and counselling. Despite its severity and typical presentation, however, many physicians remain unfamiliar with the condition, first described by Harry Angelman in 1965." "In this book, Bernard Dan provides a comprehensive review of the clinical and genetic issues, natural history, possible pathophysiological pathways, specific clinical problems (motor impairment, behaviour, learning difficulties, communication, sleep, epilepsy), clinical neurophysiology, neuropathology, rehabilitation and basic research in the field of Angelman syndrome."--BOOK JACKET.Dan, Bernard is the author of 'Angelman's Syndrome', published 2007 under ISBN 9781898683551 and ISBN 1898683557.
