Overview

The third edition of this successful textbook has been completely updated throughout and includes new chapters on electrophysiological tests, biological markers, global staging measures, and management of neuropsychiatric symptoms. There has been steady progress in our understanding of the natural history, prognostic factors and treatments for Alzheimer’s disease since the previous edition of this textbook was published in 1999. The chapters deal with the full spectrum of populations at risk, persons in prodromal stages, and patients from mild to severe and even terminal stages. The contributors are opinion leaders from North America and Europe, which gives the book an internationally balanced outlook. This new edition will be essential reading for a wide range of clinical neuroscientists who manage patients with this challenging disease.
