Book description

This new edition of The Behavioral Neurology of Dementia provides clinicians and researchers with the latest research findings written by the leading dementia experts. With chapters ranging from cognitive evaluation to imaging, and genetics and pathology to treatment, the detailed clinical descriptions of diseases and symptoms serve not only as an educational tool for trainees, but also as an opportunity for experienced clinicians to deepen their knowledge and better serve their patients. After years of little progress, the pace of discovery has been speeding up in the last decade, and the authors distil the most valuable discoveries into clear, insightful chapters with applicable information. All the chapters from the first edition have been refreshed with new text and figures. There are new chapters on autoimmune antibody-associated encephalopathy; chronic traumatic encephalopathy; and sleep issues in dementia.


Highly Commended, 2017 Neurology Book Award, British Medical Association


‘The Behavioral Neurology of Dementia is a detailed, comprehensive, reference book for doctors involved in the clinical diagnosis of dementia particularly the rarer forms and sub-types of dementia and would be particularly helpful for old age psychiatrists and neurologists. I found this book particularly useful, as an old age psychiatrist with a special interest in young onset dementia particularly the descriptions about some of the rarer types of dementia (e.g. CADSIL), rarer subtypes of common dementias (logopenic subtypes) and the encephlopathies. I will definitely be using the book when I need more information about less common presentations in dementia.’
