Book description

Completely rewritten and updated, this new edition is almost twice the size of its predecessor. Illustrated in colour throughout, and with contributions from the world's leading authorities, it is the definitive reference on the neuropathology of dementia. It gives practical guidance to pathologists, describes the contribution of neuroimaging to diagnosis, and surveys the clinical features of dementia. New material includes:• Three entirely new chapters on neuroimaging, molecular diagnostics, and transgenic models.• Two chapters on tauopathies under new authorship. • A chapter under new authorship on synucleinopathies, which includes multiple system atrophy. From reviews of the first edition:'This up-to-date and authoritative account will be invaluable for practising neuropathologists and a treasured work of reference for psychiatrists and neuroscientists with an interest in dementia.' Nigel J. Cairns, International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry' ... this publication is a 'must have' for every practising neuropathologist.' Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology

'… this work is greater than the sum of its excellent parts.'Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine'… the book fulfills its stated goal of reaching pathologists as well as workers in other disciplines who may be interested in the pathological basis of dementia. Most academically active neuropathologists will be conversant with the material, but this book will be a valuable resource for those neuroscientists and clinicians who may not have grasped the range of pathological conditions that can underlie such a complex disease.'

'This authoritative and comprehensive book is one of those 'must have' books and it will be invaluable for practising neuropathologists, as well as gerontologists, neurobiologists and psychiatrists working in the field of dementia. I must admit that I am delighted to have a copy of this book and have used it with more enthusiasm that I have ever thought possible.'

'A good book should fulfil at least three criteria: be of contemporary significance, be readable and have relevance to a large number of ideas and issues. The second edition of The Neuropathology of Dementia fulfils all these criteria … as an excellent neuropathological compendium and reference tool … as a starting point for anyone embarking on dementia research.'

'Verdict: obviously a must for neuropathologists with an interest in dementia …'
