Book description

Originally published in 2007, this book reflects the enormous advances in our understanding of frontotemporal dementia and related syndromes. The impetus for these advances has come from a number of directions including genetic discoveries, fresh approaches to neuroimaging and improved neuropsychological understanding of the cognitive aspects of the condition. This book provides a much needed review of the status of our knowledge of these syndromes. The book starts with chapters reviewing the history of the condition and describes the presenting clinical, neuropsychiatric and neuropsychological features, before reviewing, in detail, the areas of greatest recent research progress. The book concludes with a chapter proposing a multidisciplinary approach to patient management. Frontotemporal Dementia Syndromes will be essential reading for neurologists, psychologists, psychiatrists and other clinicians interested in cognitive and behavioural disorders, as well as to basic scientists working in the area of neurodegeneration.

Reviews

Review of the hardback:'Although no book can completely capture the rapid revolutions in the field of frontotemporal dementia (FTD), Frontotemperal Dementia Syndromes certainly does a great job in summarising some of these advances and serves as an excellent treatise on these disorders for all professionals with an interest in neurodegenerative disorders. … Frontotemporal Dementia Syndromes will, without doubt, become one of the standard textbook son FTD syndromes.'

Review of the hardback:'… Frontotemperal Dementia Syndromes is a comprehensive resource for neuropsychologists, particularly those specialising in dementia and would be a useful reference text in their libraries. … This edited text brings together many of the authoritative leaders in the field of FTD, is well-written, well-organised and very accessible with numerous tables, illustrations, figures and case studies. Its chapter on psychological interventions in FTD may be a first and leaves us wanting more. Both clinically and scientifically, it is a recommended and welcome addition.'
