Overview

Mental and Behavioral Dysfunction in Movement Disorders reflects the growing commitment of the scientific and medical communities to better understand and manage mental dysfunctions associated with hypo- and hyperkinetic movement disorders. The aim of the book is to provide the reader with an authoritative account of the many recent developments in the field, against a background of review material. Renowned researchers and clinicians review both the fundamental and clinical aspects of multiple movement disorders, including Parkinson's disease, progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration, Lewy body diseases, Huntington's disease, Tourette's Syndrome, cerebellar degeneration, and dystonia. This book illustrates the multiple mental and behavioral dysfunctions associated with movement disorders, and will be a valuable resource for clinicians, academics, and researchers in the areas of the neurological and behavioral sciences related to movement disorders, or to the study of the mental processes that involve the basal ganglia.
