Instructions for Authors

Manuscripts should be submitted in the form of an interview and may be preceded by a brief case presentation (<400 words), which is preferred. If a case presentation is included, the body of the manuscript should make references to the case as appropriate. Topics should be prepared to review the evidence and expert opinions in the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of neurologic diseases.
