Thank you to my mentors, Avital Fast, MD and Jay Weiss, MD, for sparking my interest in EMG.I have been fortunate to have a supportive and loving family, withoutwhom this book would not have been possible. Special thanks to myhusband, Jay and my children – Ari, Helene, Stefan and Richard for giving purpose and focus to my life.
 Lyn Weiss, MD
This book is dedicated to all of the physicians who are committed toteaching electrodiagnostic medicine. And, with special gratitude to myEMG instructor, Nicholas Spellman, MD, who was part of a terrificteam at Walter Reed Army Medical Center led byDr Praxedes Belanderes. I also give thanks to mymentor, friend and Chairman at Harvard, Walter Frontera, MD,PhD, who is unfailingly supportive of my academic endeavors.
 Julie Silver, MD
To my parents, who taught the importanceof learning. Avital Fast, MD, who,while teaching EMG, would constantly remind residents thatwe are clinicians, not technicians. He taught that a good electromyographer must be a clinician first.Mostly however, I dedicate this book to Lyn Weiss, MD.I have been blessed that my Chairman, my partner,my best friend and my wife are one and the same person.It has been a privilege and pleasure to learn with you,learn from you, teach you and teach with you.Ari, Helene, Stefan, Richard and Lyn – you give meaning to life.
