The Behavioral Neurology of Dementia

The Behavioral Neurology of Dementia is a comprehensive textbook that offers a unique and modern approach to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with dementing conditions. The coverage is broad, ranging from common conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, parkinsonian disorders, vascular and frontotemporal dementia, to the more obscure such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Subtypes of mild cognitive impairment are presented and the early prodromes of Alzheimer's disease, vascular disease, parkinsonian disorders and frontotemporal dementia are explored from the perspective of mild cognitive impairment. Simple approaches to bedside mental status testing, differential diagnosis and treatment, genetic testing, interpreting neuropsychological testing and neuroimaging findings, and assessing rapidly progressive dementias, paraneoplastic syndromes, and disorders of white matter give guidance to both the novice and expert in dementia. The basic science of dementia is outlined in introductory chapters on animal models of dementia, dementia epidemiology, and dementia neuropathology. The Behavioral Neurology of Dementia is edited by two leading authorities in the field of dementia and written by an international group of opinion-leaders from the United States, Europe, and Asia, who provide a truly comprehensive coverage of dementia for the twenty-first century.
