Neuropsychology of Cardiovascular Disease

Overview

Cardiovascular disease – the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in most westernized nations – confers risk for stroke, vascular dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. In the first edition of this volume, it was demonstrated that even among stroke and dementia-free persons, several traditional risk factors for cardiovascular disease, plus a spectrum of cardiovascular diseases and their medical and surgical treatments are associated with brain abnormalities and neurocognitive ...

Overview

Cardiovascular disease – the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in most westernized nations – confers risk for stroke, vascular dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. In the first edition of this volume, it was demonstrated that even among stroke and dementia-free persons, several traditional risk factors for cardiovascular disease, plus a spectrum of cardiovascular diseases and their medical and surgical treatments are associated with brain abnormalities and neurocognitive difficulties.

The second edition of this work reveals the vast expansion of research in this area of investigation, and covers relations to brain and neurocognition of a series of behavioral, biomedical, and psychophysiological risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Chapters link literature on cardiovascular diseases and their treatments. Also covered are cardiovascular risk factors and their potential mechanisms of influence on dementia pathogenesis.

Neuropsychology of Cardiovascular Disease, 2nd Edition is a resource for professionals and students in neuropsychology, behavioral medicine, neurologists, cardiologists, epidemiologists, gerontologists, nurses, and other health care professionals who work with patients with, or at risk for, cardiovascular disease. It also set future research agendas, and offer clinicians direction in the assessment of patients with cardiovascular diseases.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The generation of data on the neurobehavioral effects of cardiovascular disease and its risk factors has greatly accelerated over the past 15 years. This timely update of Waldstein and Elias’ pioneering first edition provides a comprehensive and authoritative discussion of this expanding field. A particular strength of this edited book is that its authors have thoroughly integrated neuropsychological findings with sophisticated models of the biological substrates of cardiovascular disease."

--Gregory G. Brown, Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine, USA

"This comprehensive new edition brings together international contributors representing the world’s leading experts to capture every major development in the field since 2001. Neuropsychology of Cardiovascular Disease, Second Edition is an essential desk reference for researchers and clinicians alike."

--Adam Davey, Professor of Public Health, Temple University, USA

"I commend this book for all those interested in the biomedical basis of the links between cardiovascular disease and the mind. It crosses an important professional divide and will inform and fascinate readers who approach the subject irrespective of whether their starting point lies with cardiology or psychology."

--Gary L. Jennings, Director, Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, Australia

Booknews
Provides an overview of the neuropsychological consequences of cardiovascular disease, tracking its natural history, epidemiology, and treatments. Chapters roughly follow in sequence with the natural progression of cardiovascular disease, from the early manifestations of the disease through the neuropsychological consequences of its later manifestations and the relation of cerebrovascular disease to neuropsychological performance. Authors represent professional disciplines including neuropsychology, behavioral medicine, epidemiology, public health, neurology, internal medicine, gerontology, and biostatistics. Annotation c.
