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. While historically the emphasis in studying Alzheimer's disease has been on cognitive decline, this unique, state of the art book rectifies this imbalance and addresses the key behavioral and neuropsychiatric disorders associated with dementing conditions. Written by a world famous leader in the field of dementia and neuropsychiatry, this dynamic text has been richly illustrated with graphs, brain imaging and pathology. Rigorously referenced, it is packed with essential information and will be an excellent resource for clinicians as well as an ideal teaching text.
