The Neuropsychiatry of Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias

Overview

Alzheimer's disease and related dementias represent an increasing threat to public health, in addition to the stress they place upon patients, their families and caregivers.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: The author has written a superb and beautifully illustrated monograph on the neuropsychiatric aspects of Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias.
Purpose: He has sought to synthesize neuropsychiatric findings in the dementias with neuroimaging, neuropathology, and neurochemistry. The result is a rich interconnection of behavior, physiology, and anatomy.
Audience: Any physician who sees dementia patients will find this book of interest. Investigators who study the neuropsychiatric aspects of dementias will also find the book of value, although it is meant to be a careful overview of neuropsychiatry and dementia, rather than a research text.
Features: The author has taken an approach that combines careful semi-quantitative observations about neuropsychiatric behaviors in dementia and combines it with growing knowledge about the neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, and neuropathology of these disorders. Topics covered include Alzheimer's disease, Lewy Body Dementia, Parkinson's disease, vascular dementia, frontal lobe dementia, and Jakob-Creutzfedlt disease.
Assessment: This book is clearly written, meticulously referenced, and beautifully illustrated with neuropathology, neuroimaging, and illustrative drawings. It is an exceptional book that distinguishes itself with the quality of its writing as well as the quality of the scholarship. The author discusses new hypotheses about the origins of neuropsychiatric phenomena in the dementias that will surely continue to stimulate more research in this difficult but important area.
