Neurology Top Stories of 2011

A perspective on the most important research in the field from the past year

We are pleased to introduce this year’s Journal Watch Neurology Top Ten Stories of 2011. We have determined the Top Stories of 2011 after carefully reviewing all of the past year’s summaries. In making our choices, we have tried to strike a balance between relevance to the clinician, recognition of landmark studies, and media publicity and public awareness. The stories are arranged in no particular order, and their sequence is not intended to reflect their relative importance. All citations are from 2011, unless otherwise noted.

Our Top Stories for 2011 are:
