Twelve years ago, Practical Neurology debuted with a cover story about the burgeoning need for stroke centers in the US. Tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) was relatively new to the market, and the Brain Attack Coalition had just released recommendations for the establishment of stroke centers. The push was underway to recognize and treat brain attacks early in their course by raising public awareness and preparing trauma centers to institute rapid care.

This month, we again focus on stroke (Check out the cover story on p. 12, which offers an experience-based guide to establishing a stroke center)—and we make another debut.

Our new logo offers a fresh face to the publication you've come to rely on over the last dozen years. As you page through this and future editions of Practical Neurology you'll find the same quality editorial and the same graphicallyappealing design that you've been accustomed to. You'll see that we continue to tackle the topics that matter to you with expert insights and straightforward advice.
