The book includes general chapters on the neuroanatomy and neurobiology of the aging brain, and moves on to discussion of specifics including signal transduction, cell death, and specific cellular and neurological changes associated with dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease.

Review:

"Brain structure and cognitive function in normal aging as well as in Alzheimer's disease is the focus of an excellent multi-authored volume, Handbook of the Aging Brain. An enormous amount of data is summarized leading to the overall conclusion that Alzheimer's disease is not simply a more serious or rapid extension of the normal aging process...[Handbook of the Aging Brain] is strongly recommended for those with considerable knowledge of neurobiology, Alzheimer's disease, aging, and brain disorders."
--CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY

"In conclusion, the book is a collection of reviews that offers the most recent advances in the field, and the cahpters are well-written, well-organized, and well-referenced. The book is a very good source for both clinicians and research workers."
--JOURNAL OF THE INTERNATIONAL NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL SOCIETY
