Abstract

Psychiatric symptoms and behavioral disturbances in dementia (sometimes referred to as noncognitive features of dementia or neuropsychiatric symptoms) are important aspects of the clinical syndrome of dementia. Despite their significance, there have been few studies concentrating on these features from the viewpoint of therapy. This article reviews some of the studies that have been carried out. For more detailed reviews, the reader is referred to Schneider and Sobin (1994) and Burns (1994).
