From the Publisher
Frontotemporal Dementia by Bruce Miller is a remarkable book. Presenting the exciting science of this rapidly progressive field, the book is comprehensive, up-to-date, and clinically relevant. While introducing the latest advances in genetics, imaging, and neuropathology, Frontotemporal Dementia captures the author's important perspective on the philosophical issues raised by these unique disorders regarding how they impact our understanding of our sense of self and our role in the human community. This milestone volume is the definitive reference on frontotemporal dementias.

"This is an exciting and authoritative book on frontotemporal dementia (FTD) that spans the biological and clinical features of a fascinating disease that sits directly in the intersection between neurology, psychiatry and neuroscience. It elucidates key principles around the biological basis for abnormal behavior. The superbly written book is a comprehensive guide for the physicians, psychologists, neuroscientists, and others who work with FTD and is very highly recommended."

Frontotemporal lobar degenerations are being recognized with increasing frequency by the practicing neurologist. They are also offering unique research opportunities for exploring the molecular foundations of selective vulnerability and the neurobiology of cognitive networks. In this lavishly illustrated monograph, Bruce Miller integrates the history, clinical manifestations, cognitive patterns, neuropathology, genetics and even philosophical implications of FTD into a comprehensive account that is as readable as it is authoritative. This volume offers the single most coherent account of the topic that I have yet encountered.

"This book will be helpful to neurologists, neuropsychologists, neuropsychiatrists, those who specialize in geriatrics, and specially those who have patients with frontotemporal dementia. ... This book authored by Dr. Bruce Miller is a very important source of information on FTD, and includes case studies and Reference lists at the end of chapters on other books and sources of information and research on similar subjects. Its value is enhanced with black-and-white and multicolor brain scans, boxes, charts, tables, and other features." --Biz India
