Abstract

Abstract The neurological examination is an essential part of the diagnostic process and is mistakenly thought of as difficult or esoteric by medical students and junior doctors. It should be used as a form of hypothesis testing once a differential diagnosis has been formulated from the patient's history. This contribution analyses the various components of the neurological examination, understanding which may enable the reader to perform with greater confidence. As in any other walk of life, however, practice makes perfect.
