Overview

Memory complaints are a frequent feature of psychiatric disorder even in the absence of organic disease. In this practical reference, German Berrios and John Hodges lead an international team of eminent clinicians to focus on the psychiatric and organic aspects of memory disorders from the perspective of the multidisciplinary memory clinic. The disorders discussed include the dementias, amnesic syndrome and transient amnesic states, and the psychiatric aspects of memory disorders in the functional psychoses. Throwing new light on established conditions and introducing two new syndromes, this book is a major contribution to the clinical management of memory disorders in psychiatry, neuropsychology, and other disciplines.
