New book: Movement Disorder Genetics

bookJose, together with Susanne Schneider are the editors of the book Movement Disorder Genetics recently published by Springer. This has been a very well received book covering recent developments and possible pitfalls in the diagnosis of genetic movement disorders and related conditions.

It is divided into three sections: technical and scientific aspects; clinical aspects with guidance towards work-up; and ethical and legal aspects of genetic testing in a clinical and research setting.
