Booknews
Neurologists and related specialists contribute 11 studies to what seems to be the first of projected annual reviews of developments in the pathology of dementia, diagnosis, nature history, and treatment. Their focus ranges from the genetics of Alzheimer's disease and fronto-temporal dementia to the diagnosis criteria for dementia with Lewy bodies, parkinsonism, and subcortical ischemia. They also explore the natural history of minimal cognitive impairment as relevant to randomized clinical trials that aim to delay conversion into dementia. Distributed in the US by Blackwell Science.
