Overview

This volume provides a synthesis of the compelling research that has emerged describing the intricate interrelationships between the pathophysiology of vascular Dementia (VaD) and neuropathological features of other degenerative diseases. Binding together clinical relevant aspects of the disease, this book integrates findings from studies that have focused on the neuropathology, neuropsychology and behavioral neurology of VaD. Unique in its presentation that reviews VaD in depth from basic etiology to clinical practice, this volume will be extremely attractive to both clinicians and researchers in general and behavioral neurology, neuropsychiatry, geriatric psychiatry and clinical neuropsychology.
