Spiegel, R., Sleep and Sleeplessness i n Advanced A g e
(Advances i n Sleep Research, Vol 5). New York, SP Medical and Scientrfic Books, 1981, 2 7 2 pp, illustrated, $35.00
This is a Swiss study of 113 unselected medically healthy
men and women averaging 64 years of age. Among other
findings, the results demonstrate that in the elderly, as in
other age groups, there is little relationship between insomnia and either medical or blatant psychiatric illness. Insomniacs tend to underestimate the duration of sleep as
polygraphically recorded, while “good” sleepers tend to
overestimate it. Subjects routinely using hypnotics were
few but showed no distinctive differences from the rest of
the sample.
Spillane, J . D., The Doctrine of the Nerves. Nezu York,
Oxford University Press, 1981, 467 pp, illustrated, $50.00
As the author says, “This book is primarily intended to
show the newcomer to neurology the lie of the land, historically speaking: to set him on course, as it were, and
show him where we neurologists came from.” D r Spillane
ably fulfills his goal with sections covering the foundations
of neurology, the eighteenth century, the nineteenth century, and the second half of the nineteenth century. Spillane has written an interesting and informative book, but
his bibliography does seem to give rather less attention to
non-English-speaking neurologists and neuroscientists than
they deserve.

These two volumes comprehensively cover the muscle diseases in 27 chapters. References in most chapters go as
late as 1977. Topics include fundamental considerations
of anatomy, pathology and physiology, experimental
myopathies, the use of tissue culture, and classification
and clinical manifestations of the myopathies, with individual chapters on the various separately identified dystrophies and inflammatory myopathies and a series of
chapters on myasthenia gravis, periodic paralysis, metabolic myopathies, endocrine myopathies, myoglobin, acute
muscle weakness, motor unit hyperactivity, oncological
neuromuscular disorders, the genetics of neuromuscular
diseases, and rehabilitation. T h e vofumes are an excellent
addition to the high quality of the Handbook series.
