Overview

This work focuses on the different patterns of cognitive decline that characterize dementias of various etiologies. The effects of various dementing disorders on different domains of neuropsychological functioning are reviewed, such as attention, memory, intelligence, problem-solving, language skills, visual-spatial functioning, sensory-perceptual abilities, and motor skills. Leading researchers in the field of clinical neuropsychology discuss the unique neuropsychological features of specific dementias and how this information in the context of other clinical data about the patient can aid in making a differential diagnosis. Management issues pertaining to each dementing disorder are also discussed in each chapter. Among the dementing conditions covered are Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementias, dementia associated with alcoholism, tumors, AIDS, and toxicometabolic disorders. Chapters are also devoted to cognitive functioning in normal aging and depression. Up-to-date information concerning neuroimaging, psychopharmacological approaches to treatment, and legal issues in dementia is included in this comprehensive volume.
