About the Authors
  • This book is the first to review in depth the neurobiological and clinical characteristics of memory and its disorders in neurodegenerative disease. It presents current information about memory disorders in Alzheimer's, Huntington's and Parkinson's diseases and in other neurological conditions such as progressive supranuclear palsy, Creutzfeld–Jacob disease and HIV-associated dementia. The contributors are among the most distinguished working in this field. They present the neuroanatomical and neurochemical basis of memory disorders in neurodegenerative disease, and review the contribution of neuroradiology and neuropathology to the understanding of memory and amnesia. Diagnosis, assessment and treatment issues are discussed, as are ethical and legal considerations and topics of emerging interest such as the early detection of dementia. Bringing together biological, cognitive and clinical information, this book will be an essential reference for clinicians and neuroscientists. It serves as an authoritative and up-to-date overview of the dementias and the prospects for treating them.

    • Integrates biological, cognitive and clinical information in a single reference
    • Covers neglected areas such as ethics and legal issues, and new areas such as preserved cognitive function
    • Summary chapters from leading authorities follow each section
