The Dark Side of Neuro-Intervention

Author(s): Riyadh Alokaili

Book Description

Neuro-intervention is widely believed to be one of medicine’s most exciting specialties, given that it is growing, dynamic and often rewarding in countless ways to both practitioners and patients. However, it can be a source of misfortune to recipients and its providers alike, in more ways than many of us realize or care to admit. This book shows that some problems associated with the field are not solely a product of outlying circumstances or individuals, but are, rather, systemic, insidious and ubiquitous issues affecting research, education, and publications.
