An up-to-date survey of the major dementing disorders, this guide provides the most recent clinical, epidemiological, and neurodiagnostic information related to the care and treatment of dementing illnesses-addressing subjects of vital importance such as ethics, neuropsychology, neuroimaging, and neuropathology to stand as the foremost guide on the topic.


"…an excellent, comprehensive review of an extremely difficult topic."

-Mayo Clinic Proceedings (for previous edition)

"…well organized and easy to read, and its emphasis of broad issues and the implications for diagnosis and management rather than on narrow academic detail will make it attractive to a general clinical readership."
