Overview

For most of human history, life expectancy was remarkably stable at about 30--40 years. Within the past 150 years, however, medical advances have virtually doubled that number. The world’s elderly population is growing at 2.4% per year, faster than the rest of the population, with disproportionate increases expected to continue as newer and better treatments are found that minimize the disabilities associated with advanced age.

Key to improving the health and quality of life of the elderly is understanding and treating the brain diseases and behavioral disorders that become highly prevalent with age. Geriatric neuropsychiatry is an integrative specialty that draws from many diverse fields, including psychiatry, neurology, neuroscience, and geriatrics. It provides expertise on how to distinguish normal age-related changes from those of disease and disordered brain function.

Edited by two eminent practitioners and educators, the Textbook of Geriatric Neuropsychiatry’s 41 chapters are divided into five major sections. Following a comprehensive introduction to geriatric neuropsychiatry, the editors include detailed chapters about neuropsychiatric assessment and neuropsychiatric aspects of psychiatric disorders and neurological disease in the elderly. They conclude with a discussion of the principles of neuropsychiatric treatment of the elderly.

Exhaustively researched and annotated, this wide-ranging textbook provides a definitive core reference for psychiatry and neurology residents, particularly those pursuing a specialty in geriatrics and for graduate students in psychology, neuropsychology, and related fields.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is an outstanding and comprehensive second edition of this now classic textbook on the field and current state of progress in geriatric neuropsychiatry. Edited and authored by internationally recognized researcher-clinicians, this textbook is an exceptionally valuable contribution to this field.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the editors, is to update and incorporate the very latest in neuroscience research in a textbook designed for clinicians interested in brain-behavior relations as they pertain to our aging population. The editors have greatly succeeded in their goal!
Audience: The intended audience is healthcare professionals including psychiatrists, neurologists, psychologists, geriatricians, and other clinicians who desire to understand and manage behavioral disorders of the elderly based on neuroscientific principles. This should be mandatory reading for residents in geriatric psychiatry and neuropsychiatry/behavioral neurology training programs.
Features: The textbook features 1000 pages divided into five sections and 41 chapters, including an index section. Section I is an overview of geriatric psychiatry and neuropsychiatry with chapters. Epidemiology and the neurobiology of aging are covered in this section. In Section II neuropsychiatric assessment is discusssed, including neuropsychological evaluation and brain imaging. Sections III and IV include coverage of neuropsychiatric aspects of psychiatric and neurological disorders in the elderly. Section V features up-to-date chapters on pharmacotherapy, electroconvulsive therapy, and psychological treatments. Each chapter ends with up-to-date and useful references. The book ends with a useful index section.
Assessment: This is an extremely valuable second edition of this textbook on geriatric neuropsychiatry. Clinicians and researchers as well as trainees will, without a doubt, benefit from reading and referring to this book.
