Abstract

This online guide is a clinically-oriented resource designed for clinicians, scientists, and other health professionals involved in the diagnosis, management, and investigation of disease states causing dementia. Chapters emphasize a multidisciplinary approach to understanding dementia and take an integrative approach by providing three major sections that establish the neuroanatomical and cognitive framework underlying disorders of cognition, provide fundamental as well as cutting-edge material covering specific diseases associated with dementia, and discuss approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of dementing illnesses.
